ARTIST'S MUSE ..........




Vilhelm Hammershoi { 1864 - 1916 } was a Danish painter known for his poetic and subdued portraits and interiors. 



I really like his work .....




Hammershoi's wife features in many of his interiors, often depicted from behind ..........






..... I think that I would have been quite good as his muse !!!

  3. I remember David Hockney saying that he often hid feet or hands behind foliage, because he couldn't be bothered to do the extra work. I think VH probably thought the same about faces. I've not heard of him before; beautiful work.

  5. How strange, he looks like Pierre Bonnard. His paintings drew me into thinking of Bonnard (without the bath). But very different and yet something similarly haunting.

  11. Hello Jackie,

    Beautiful paintings, I agree. I love the sculptural element Vilhelm Hammershoi brings to his figures. You would be a perfect model/muse for any artist. Love your style of dressing.

  17. A muse's job is to penetrate the male artist and bring forth a work from the womb of his mind.
