Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916)

you once asked "what is the difference between loneliness and solitude?" The paintings of Hammershøi give the best answer.

it is not about the woman, it is about the light.

I once saw an exhibition of his works in which every painting was put in a room lit precisely the same as in the painting. it was an unforgettable experience and it keeps coming back to me, how i stood in that pool of light.
