Catalogue Note

While Vilhelm Hammershøi limited his palette to tonal greys, whites and blues, Carl Holsøe employs a more naturalistic palette to render this intimate space. His careful observation of light can be seen in the radiant light of the window shining to the floor and reflecting on the open door’s glossy surface. The wide expanse of wall is a tonal field of diminished hues, enveloping the furniture and objects which evoke a melancholic, everyday narrative.
