Painted at Fredensborg Palace in Denmark where the British, Russian and Danish royal families regularly gathered, on this occasion to celebrate the 65th birthday of Queen Louise. This is the first work by the Danish artist to enter the Royal Collection and it is testament to his skill in creating cohesive group portraits, which evoke the individuality of the sitters.
