interior with garden

not quite sure where mr. holsøe has his garden in this painting, maybe that’s what they call plants on a windowsill in denmark? he reminds me a lot of vilhelm hammershøi, and i even notice their paintings attributed to one another quite often. though i think hammershøi is more ethereal & poetic  – holsøe is technically wonderful and deep as well. you can tell all those fellas from “the free exhibition” (hammershøi, holsøe & peter ilsted) were very close in life, and technique – i’d list them in that order though, as far as favorites are concerned, with ilsted & holsøe pretty much tied.
