“There is an idea in Finland that it is good to sit in silence as the light goes, to observe nightfall as a time of contemplation - ‘pitaa hamaraa’, ‘keeping the twilight’”. - Peter Davidson, The Idea of North
Vilhelm Hammershoi, Woman in an Interior (1900-09)
Interesting collection of works. The top most one really works for me. I know the darkness illuminated from behind by reds and oranges has been done many a time, but it is a technique I greatly admire.
