This comprehensive survey, published to coincide with a major exhibition, explores the work of the Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864–1916). In haunting interior scenes, Hammershøi dispensed with anecdotal detail, transforming his apartment into a series of disturbingly empty spaces. The same strange stillness can be seen in his portraits, landscapes, and city views of his native Copenhagen and of London, in all of which the passage of time appears to have been inexplicably suspended.


Expertly produced, Hammershøi explores the singularity of the artist’s vision, placing his achievement in the context of ?n-de-siècle Symbolist art and examining his links with Dutch masters of the seventeenth century. Widely revered in Europe during his lifetime, Hammershøi is now ripe for rediscovery.
