Sophus Vermehren was born as the son of the painter Frederik Vermehren and his wife Thomasine Ludvigne Grüner. He trained as a painter for three years and learned to draw from his father. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1883 to 1892 and made his debut at Charlottenborg in 1893 with a portrait of Professor Adolph Kittendorff.
Vermehren regularly participated in Charlottenborg's spring exhibition between 1891 and 1915 and several times at Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling. He is represented, among others, at the Statens Museum for Kunst.
This portrait of A Young Girl Peeling Fruit is a fine piece by this artist, the identity of the sitter is currently unknown. In this painting we see Vermehrens's talent for details, for example how the shadows and the red/pink cheeks on the young girl's face are painted, and the three-dimensional feeling of the fruits and the textiles is painted with confident brush strokes.
