Vilhelm Hammershoi counted cross stitch patterns
1864-1916. Vilhelm Hammershoi was a Danish painter, best known for his poetic, subdued portraits and interiors.
Hammershøi's paintings are best described as muted in tone. He refrained from employing bright colours (except in his very early academic works) opting always for a limited palette consisting of greys, as well as desaturated yellows, greens, and other dark hues. His tableaux of figures turned away from the viewer project an air of slight tension and mystery, while his exteriors of grand buildings in Copenhagen and in London are devoid of people, a quality they share with his landscapes.
