A Lady at the Hearth by Pehr Hilleström

Posted by on March 7, 2012

Pehr Hilleström (18 November 1732 – 13 August 1816)

I thought this picture would be a great one with which to get started.   Pehr Hilleström painted in the late 18th century Sweden, by the looks of her outfit this might be 1790’s or so.  It has any number of great details to study: a raised hearth,  various cooking vessels,  the mortar and pestle,  the storage jars, coffee grinder, the colander, trivet, spoon, bowl, unlined brass pot, and broom.  Who is this lady?

    Love the detail of the broom handle! Must make one of these for our dust mop. Thanks for your work on this blog; I will enjoy it.
