The Swedish painter Georg Pauli´s 50th anniversary party in 1905
On July 2 in 1905 the Swedish painter Georg Pauli celebrated his 50th birthday at his new summer residence in the Stockholm archipelago. The guests were mostly leading representatives of the Swedish and Scandinavian cultural elite:
Nr 1 is His Royal Highness, Prince Eugen, an eminent painter himself; nr 2 is Pauli´s wife Hanna, a leading painter herself; nr 3 is Georg Pauli; nr 4 is the writer Ellen Key: nr 5 is the painter Richard Bergh; nr. 11 is the publisher K.O. Bonnier and nr 12 is the Danish painter Viggo Johanssen.
The black and white photograph was published in the Swedish weekly Hvar 8 Dag in July 1905.
