The portraits of Hammershoi are curious works of art because of the way that this rather unsociable Danish artist handles his subjects. There is something a little different in their mood and interactions. There is also a similar story with his work on interiors and landscapes. That mood isn’t necessarily a positive, uplifting one. Yet, viewers are still drawn into the composition, choices of colour and the possible stories represented. The new retrospective on Hammershoi at the Jacquemart-André Museum is a chance to compare some of his best work. There are 40 pieces in total, combined with other objects and work from his brother to further set the scene.
Visitors are encouraged to come and make up their own minds about the mood and message of these paintings and to see this Danish master in a new light. The show “Hammershøi, the master of danish painting” has already opened and will continue at the gallery until the 22nd of July.
