Bedroom, 1890 by Vilhelm Hammershoi
So soft and moody. Previously I made a case that since this is a specific person it is indeed a portrait, and painting someone with their back to the viewer only illustrated the specific subject’s character even more.
Now I’m feeling a sense that this could be anyone. This is a feeling, not necessarily a person.
You agree?
