Hammershoi, The Master of Danish Painting

Hammershoi, The Master of Danish Painting
The name Hammershoi is one that many art lovers may not be familiar which, although he has been dubbed the Vermeer of the 20th century. It may be his nationality and era that is to blame here. To early in the 20th century to make it into contemporary showcases. Too late to be included with other European masters. Then there is the strong sense of Danish identity and the sombre, still feeling to his portraits and interiors. The new retrospective at the Jacquemart-André Museum looks set to reengage the public with Hammershoi’s work and ensure that he gets the attention he deserves. 

There are 40 pieces of his own work alongside others from family members and complementary items. Visitors have until the 22nd of July to make the most of this opportunity and draw some new conclusions about the man and his work. He may not be familiar now, but you will remember him after your visit.
