Come with Me. Dosseringen, Copenhagen

Two young women meet on Dosseringen, the embankment alongside the Lakes in Copenhagen. They are dressed in their finest clothes, so it is probably a Sunday. There is time to take a stroll to see and be seen. One of the women is gesticulating as though she wants the other to go with her. Perhaps she is out in order to save people from the temptations of earthly life. She might be coming from one of the revivalist meetings that were common in the 19th century. Her transfigured face, the lifebelt at her shoulder and the poles in the shape of a cross in the trees could point in that direction. L.A. Ring was a naturalist, but his works had powerful symbolist overtones.
