    In the 1860s, Jeanna Bauck moved to Munich to study and work. Among her pursuits, she ran a school of painting for women. Here, she has portrayed her friend and colleague Bertha Wegmann at her easel. The studio, which has a window that provides natural sidelight, was in the house where they both lived. The rest of the room is fairly dark and full of interior details and artist materials. Wegmann later became one of Denmark's most celebrated portrait painters. Bauck was active as a portrait and landscape painter.
