View Of Gentofte Lake (aka Sunshower)

Vilhelm Hammershøi, 1904

"Hammershoi was the most deliberate of artists. Nothing in the paintings is accidental and nothing is elucidated for the viewer.... there is no discernible influence of the 19th century Romantic sublime with its mood of remoteness from the ordinary. Hammershoi was perfectly capable of teasing sublimity out of the mundane. His broad panoramas become, on close inspection, carefully chosen and cropped." More at
