A typical painting of the danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi has subtle shades of gray, a tranquil atmosphere and a sparsely furnished room. The room in Malmö Art Museum's painting "Interior with a potted plant" from 1910-11 is from the artist´s own apartment in Copenhagen. His images are multi-dimensional, in the sense that they contain what we see, the light and shadows that touches the furniture surface and reflections on the rooms' walls and doors, but they also contain a "mysterious" undertone, which the eye does not see but our mind thinks it registered.
