The artist's mother Ane Hedvig Brøndum in the blue room (Danish: Kunstnerens mor Ane Hedvig Brøndum i den blå stue) is a painting by Anna Ancher from 1909.
The painting is oil on canvas, and has dimensions of 38.8 x 56.8 cm.
Anna Ancher made several paintings of his mother, Anna Hedvig (Ane) Brøndum (1826-1916), who was married to merchant and innkeeper Erik Andersen Brøndum (1820–90). After her husband's death in 1890 she ran Brøndum's Hotel, with her son Degn Brøndum, until 70 years old. The portrait is from the blue room at the hotel where she lived when she was portrayed, and here she read books and letters. Several of Anna Ancher's portraits of Ane Brøndum have the blue room as a setting.
