An exhibition of discreet and silent works by the Danish painter Hammershøi at the Jacquemart-André Museum
From March 14th to July 22nd, 2019, the Jacquemart-André Museum will hold an exhibition dedicated to Danish painting and more especially to the great master, Vilhelm Hammershøi. Hammershøi (1864-1916) is considered a special painter for his time. His painting may seem academic but if we look closely, it expresses a singular universe where a silent poetry made of grey and blue tones is floating. His interiors scenes, his portraits, his nudes, his landscapes are motionless as if they were rocked in a dream or immersed in their thoughts. Please note that the museum is an old bourgeois house and the original layout has been preserved. The place and André Jacquemart’s artworks collection are also to be discovered. "Learn more"
