  1. Kære Erik K. Abrahamsen
    Jeg har med interesse set de på de forskellige fotos af Lauritz Tuxens børn Nina og Yvonne, og det er fotos som jeg ikke har set før og som har vagt min interesse.
    Interessen for Lauritz Tuxen stammer fra Skagen hvor vi er kommet på museet flere gange om året i ca. 16 år, og på et tidspunkt købt et billede, en pastel, hvor sælgeren sagde at det var en skagens maler, muligvis Lauritz Tuxen, og muligvis Lauritz Tuxens døtre, og jeg har studeret alle de fotos og billeder som jeg har kunne finde meget grundigt for at se om det kunne være dem, og jeg mener at det godt kan være disse piger, bl.a. ved at studere hår grænserne hvor Yvonnes er helt lige, men Ninas går lidt ned i en spids.
    Det er et meget flot portræt billede(pastel) af 2 piger på omkring 7-8 år (Nina) og 12-13 år (yvonne) de har et lidt sørgmodigt udtryk, men det tilskriver jeg, hvis det er dem, den triste historie med den mistede mor og 2 søskende. Det er lidt svært helt at sammenligne fotos/billeder med pastellen, for på en del er de blevet ældre, og ser heldigvis meget mere glade ud, og har jo så ændret sig, men jeg syntes stadigt at det ligner, men billedet har lige været på museet hos koncervator Dorthe Aggerholm i Skagen, og blive ordnet, og hun syntes at det var et dejligt billede, hun havde spurgt museums direktøren om hun mente at det kunne være et Lauritz Tuxen billede (det er usigneret) men hun syntes ikke at det ligner Nina og Yvonne, og jeg anerkender jo selvfølgelig hendes store viden, men måske har du som familie en anden indsigt. Jeg har på min telefon et billede af det, og hvis du er interesseret i at se det kan jeg sende det til et tlf. nr.. Med venlig hilsen Kaja Kusk

  2. Kære Kaja Kusk.

    Tusind tak for din beretning og din forespørgsel.

    Jeg vil meget gerne modtage et billede af omtalte pastel og vil efter bedste evne sende dig min vurdering.
    Send venligst foto til min mobil 26 79 75 84.

    Med venlig hilsen
