The Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi found his preferred motifs in the rooms of his respective current apartment: open double doors or windows, sunlight falling into the sparsely furnished rooms, shadows on the wall, or his wife, who devotes herself to a domestic activity. His sister or mother with her characteristic bonnet also appear repeatedly in his paintings. Looking at his works through the years, one can watch his wife Frederikke aging.

Vilhelm Hammershoi came from an upper middle-class family, but he did not want to become a merchant like his father. Born in Copenhagen in 1864, he received drawing lessons as a child and later studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art. His melancholy, quiet interiors and genre scenes were of little use to the Copenhagen art scene, and his first paintings were rejected. Together with a comrade-in-arms, he therefore created his own exhibition opportunities and founded "Den Frie Udstilling" - "The Free Exhibition", a kind of Danish Secession. Already in 1889 he participates with some works for Denmark at the Great World Exhibition in Paris. His interiors seem to have been influenced by the French Nabis, and it was precisely in their early years that he spent time in the French capital. However, the bright colours that the Nabis like to use for their paintings are not his cup of tea. He loves the melancholy of subdued colourfulness, but he always sets colour or light accents. For example, when a ray of sunlight falls on the window frame into a dark backyard. A sign of hope? The Nordic nature? Some of his paintings remind us of works by Edward Hopper. But when Hopper is much more strongly rooted in the modern world of the 20th century, Hammershoi's works seem to be out of time, strangely still. It is not without reason that today he is called the "Danish Vermeer". His pictures keep their secret. They seem symbolically charged without being obtrusive.

Vilhelm Hammershoi especially admires the work of the great American James McNeill Whistler. During a stay of several months in London, he wants to meet him, but this does not succeed. So Hammershoi continues to work as if in secret and gradually his work becomes known. Even the great impresario Sergei Djagilev, founder of the groundbreaking "Ballets Russes", acquired two paintings from him. The Berlin gallery owner and art dealer Paul Cassirer also exhibits him in his Hamburg rooms. As a highly respected council member of the Copenhagen Art Academy, Hammershoi has spent most of the last few years painting within his familiar four walls. Only rarely does he paint melancholic, deserted city or harbour scenes in Copenhagen, London or Rome, but he has not become known for this. After his death from cancer in 1916, his work was initially forgotten outside Denmark for many decades. It was not until the 1990s that his uniquely atmospheric paintings were rediscovered. Vilhelm Hammershoi is today considered one of the most important representatives of Symbolism. © Meisterdrucke
