Great art is contradictory, and the contradiction is revealed in the difference between the materials that it contains. Great art is contrary to its time, standing in front of it, rather, going forward.Viktor Shklovsky (1893-1984)

Vilhelm Hammershoi (1864-1916)
"Hammershoi’s work has been described as ‘Monet meets the Camden School’. His wife figures in many of his interiors, often depicted from behind. His paintings are muted in tone, he refrained from employing bright colors, opting always for a limited palette consisting of grays, desaturated yellows, greens, and other dark hues. His tableaux of figures turned away from the viewer project an air of slight tension and mystery."
