Vilhelm Hammershøi (Hammershoi) was a Danish painter born in Copenhagen in 1864. He's best known for his interiors with muted tones. Most interiors were from his own apartment at Strandgade 30 in Copenhagen.
Michael Palin made this portrait of Hammershoi for the BBC in 2005. This is the first of five parts.
A documentary made by BBC Scotland in 2009. A great mix of nature, history and general knowledge about an area of the world that receives few tourists. I need to go someday - it just seems like a 3 week summer vacation isn't enough :)
This is the first of six videos. I'm sure you know how to find the other parts if you feel like seeing the rest of it.
