About the Artist: The painting is signed Th. Friis - a known pseudonym for Mark Osman Curtis. The artist was Scottish, but lived and worked in Denmark. He used a variety of pseudonyms, suggesting that he worked under contract to several department stores and/or galleries. He was a recluse who, nevertheless, was known by virtually every art dealer in Denmark.
