Sotheby’s Has Jens Risom’s Hammershoi Painting in June


Sotheby’s announces they will be selling another Hammserhoi in London’s June sale. The work comes from the estate of famed furniture designer, Jens Risom:

This June, Sotheby’s will offer at auction a quintessential interior by Vilhelm Hammershøi, long revered as one of Denmark’s most celebrated artists. Painted in 1899, White Doors perfectly reflects the interests and sensibilities of its distinguished owners, aesthetes from three generations of the same family. The work comes to sale from the estate of Jens Risom, the renowned Danish American furniture designer, best known for his mass-produced ‘Risom Chair’. Estimated at £400,000-600,000, the painting will be offered in Sotheby’s sale of 19th Century European Paintings in London on 6 June 2017.
