Peter Ilsted

The Open Door. Ilsted was Hammershøi's brother-in-law and painted pictures of a similar kind, although by no means as original and intense.

Hammershøi was married to Ilsted's sister Ida, whom he portrays very frequently in his paintings (sometime even showing her from the front). It is interesting to compare this with Ilsted's paintings, which lack that indefinable visionary element.
