One of Denmark’s most celebrated painters, Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) quietly and resolutely painted close acquaintances, landscapes, and subdued interiors. Influenced by 17th-century Dutch painting, Hammershøi is sometimes called “the Vermeer of the North” for his depictions of tranquil room interiors. Only since the 1990s has he returned to the limelight as a result of comprehensive retrospectives of his work, including major exhibitions at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. A retrospective held in Japan in 2008 profoundly impacted Japanese fans of Hammershøi’s work.
This exhibition will be the first comprehensive survey in Japan of Vilhelm Hammershøi and the masters of Danish modern art. Besides works by Hammershøi, visitors can look forward to seeing many of the finest paintings by his contemporaries.
