holsoe

Carl Holsoe tablosunda doğmayı dilerdim. nasıl sükun, nasıl naif tablolar… o ince, o narin, o mükemmel detaylar… tablosundaki kadınları öylesine kıskanıyorum ki. öyle sabit, öyle dingin, öyle sakin kalmk isterdim o güzel odalarda. hayattan tek beklentim holsoe kadını olabilmek. bu arada, aranızda eli fırça tutan varsa, bana minik bir holsoe reproduksiyonu hazırlayabilir, hiç hayır demem ki.

Brothers-in-law Peter Vilhelm ILSTED and Vilhelm HAMMERSHØI along with brothers Carl Vilhelm HOLSOE and Neil HOLSOE were leading artists in early 20th century Denmark.

Peter, Vilhelm, Carl and possibly Neil were members of ‘The Free Exhibition’, a progressive art society created around 1890. They are famous for painting images of “Sunshine and Silent Rooms” in subtle colors. All of their works reflect the orderliness of a tranquil life.
