Princess Margareta

Elegance is the keyword to describe Oscar Björck's colourful portrait of the young Princess Margareta. The crown princess is painted in her apartment on the lower floor of the northwest wing of the Royal Palace of Stockholm. She stands in the Green Room, in front of a large 18th century tapestry. Next to her is Sergel's bust of Queen Sofia Magdalena.

The portrait was painted by Oscar Björck, one of Prince Eugen's best and oldest friends. The painting was exhibited at the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö in 1914.
