Antique lithography "Girl writing" by Abraham Lundqvist & Co, after August Jernberg, 1865. August Jernberg "Girl who writes" became widely known early on because it was depicted as a lithograph in Litografiskt Allehanda as early as 1865. The subject—a girl writing to her lover—in this case an officer, whose photograph she gazes wistfully—appeared early to impress 19th-century Swedish art. The girl's loss of her lover was emphasized by Jernberg's inclusion of objects in the painting that remind him of his presence: a pipe end without a handle on the table in front of the girl, and a man's coat and hat on the wall to the right. During the 1880s, this motif became relatively common among Scandinavian artists.
