Vilhelm Hammershøi

18.7.11

I love the deep sense of calm radiating from these paintings by Vilheml Hammershøi. Perhaps a little too realistic and melancholy for some; it is this simplicity and starkness that I find most intriguing. With minimal furnishing, natural lightning and moody shadows, the Danish painter manages to speak volumes with his mostly faceless and solitary subjects.
