A Danish artist's marriage picture, 1890



Peder Kroyer with his wife Marie, whom he had married in the preceding July. His wife's features are clearly defined and she stares out with a calm gaze, but his own are blurred and introspective. Perhaps if she had painted the picture, she would have depicted his features with that loving precision and presented herself as more self-absorbed. The contrast is strangely touching.
