In 1911 Hamershøi rented a villa, Spurvesjkul (sparrows’ refuge) outside Copenhagen, where he spent the summer with his wife. While they were there he painted this study, which he was to use for a self-portrait. The artist travelled widely in Europe as a young man; in the Netherlands he was profoundly impressed by seventeenth-century painters like Johannes Vermeer and Pieter de Hooch.
