Landscape. From Lejre by Vilhelm Hammershøi

"Hammershøi also depicted a different kind of landscape: the very open vistas from e.g. Refsnæs and Lejre. Here, the landscapes mainly consist of sky and have an almost over-lit and condensed feel. The paintings appear limitless, yet also as stringently cropped sections devoid of people or narrative detail. No path leads into the paintings; the lines all run parallel to the picture plane."
