So when we visited the AGO in Toronto last time, there was an exhibition on the master of painting serenity and stillness Vilhelm Hammershøi. To me, his work oozes that Scandinavian minimalistic style and elegance. The center of the exhibition was the painting “Interior With Four Etches”. A painting rarely seen before as it comes out of a private collection. I understand it is traveling around the world now and we were so lucky to admire it in Toronto.
The Walker Men thought it a rather gloomy affair but I was in love. The light, the muted cool colors, the perfection in little details…
This set up was a little joke the museum had set up to make it look as if you could be in the painting. Mr. Walker planted me on the chair right away and I was very happy.
Although, I posses by no means even an ounce of this magnificent painter talents in any way…I could not resist this drawing…And I know it does not look like me at all. I personally would have turned the chair around and poured the Lady and myself a cuppa anyway!
Love and Liefs, Johanna
