Painted in 1902, this work belongs to the series of views painted by Hammershøi in his apartment at Strandgade 30 in the mercantile district of Christianshavn in Copenhagen, an address that was to play a critical role in the development of the painter’s singular aesthetic. Hammershøi and his wife Ida occupied the apartment from 1898 until 1909, and during this decade its sparsely furnished interconnecting rooms, grey walls and solid white-painted doors provided the setting for some of his most recognisable compositions. Hammershøi painted the present view, of the dining room at the front of the apartment, in numerous guises, on occasions with Ida or the maid, and furnished with tables and chairs, by times pared down to its absolute essentials (fig. 1). Either way, the result was to create compositions that were not so much narratives of domestic life as poetic symphonies of tone and light.

Hammershøi's subtle use of light, muted tones and choice of subject are clearly indebted to the Dutch seventeenth-century master Johannes Vermeer. Both artists favoured depictions of single female models posed in a simple room with an indirect light source. Hammershøi travelled to Holland in 1887 where he would have seen Vermeer's works first-hand. Like Vermeer's, Hammershøi's models adopt the same unselfconscious pose in calm, hermetically sealed interiors. Hammershøi's influence, in turn, can be felt in the works of succeeding generations of artists, architects, and film makers, including Edward Hopper, whose haunting interiors evoke a similar atmosphere of solitude and mystery; Ida Lorentzen, and Gerhard Richter.
