A forgotten flower of paint



[Hammershoi - Interior]


Thanks to ReadySteadyBook, I clicked through to this exhibit of Hammershoi.

I've been mostly looking at illustration and graphic arts lately, but I do miss my quiet weekends at the Frick or, years before that, at the Courtauld or the Wallace Collection. I miss the paint and the frames and the sense of layers and time and work. I miss finding those spots of painted yellow wall. I miss DC's National Gallery and the Sargents -- and I miss the few, rare Brueghels I've seen in my short travels. Brueghel, Vermeer, Redon and Hammershoi -- subtleties and surprises.
