Hammershøi and Europe
This generously illustrated volume that accompanied an exhibition at Copenhagen's Statens Museum for Kunst, examines Danish artist, Vilhelm Hammershøi's work as a whole and in relation to the artists of his generation.
Hammershøi's enigmatic paintings, with their rich and muted palettes, have always enjoyed enormous popularity in Scandinavia, and recently his work has received renewed attention across the globe. Thematically arranged, this volume includes beautiful reproductions and essays that focus on Hammershøi's isolated private life and travels; his time in London and Germany; and comparisons between him and such notable painters as Seurat, Gauguin, and Whistler. Fans of this remarkable painter, and anyone interested in modern art, will enjoy this celebration of Hammershøi.
