Hammershøi and Europe
COPENHAGEN  •  Danish National Gallery  •  Ongoing
The great spring exhibition of 2012 serves a dual purpose: The exhibition presents the Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) and his art as a phenomenon in itself. In addition to this the exhibition takes a new and investigative approach to Hammershøi by having his art enter into a dialogue with fellow European artists of his day. Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) has often been regarded as a singular, isolated figure within the Danish and European art scene. The exhibition Hammershøi and Europe marks a break with this tradition. It takes the artist down new roads by juxtaposing his works with those of other artists from his era such as Whistler, Carriére, Fantin-Latour, Gauguin, and Khnopff.
