About this artwork

This painting is part of a series by Vilhelm Hammershøi capturing his sparsely decorated apartment at Strandgade 30 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Hammershøi often moved furniture and objects around his home like studio props: here, he placed a chair, piano, cello, and violin in a corner of the drawing room. Despite the inclusion of musical instruments, the scene evokes only eerie silence, with no sense of a human presence to play them.
