Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864 – 1916) is perhaps the greatest Danish artist of the late 19th century. The exhibition featuring a range of works drawn from the collection of The National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst, SMK), including home interiors, monumental urban scenes, rural landscapes, nudes, and portraits – offers a unique look into Hammershøi’s remarkable life and work.
