Explore the details

Detail studies were common in the 18th century as preliminary stages towards the finished painting.   Here you can see a detail study and inspect the painting for which it was used.

As a preliminary study for his portrait of the countess Anna Joachima Danneskiold-Laurvigen the artist Jens Juel created a detail study of the countess’ right hand. 

The detail study appears on the right-hand side of the screen.

Jens Juel subsequently incorporated the detail study in the finished painting, which is shown below. 

You can also zoom in the details in the painting .
