Vilhelm Hammershoi (Danimarca, 1864–1916) Interior, Strandgade 30. Pittore del silenzio, secondo la grande tradizione nordica, Hammershoi ama inquadrare i suoi personaggi di spalle, in ambienti chiari, puliti, quasi sotto vuoto.
Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet (1778–1829) was a Cornish chemist and inventor. In this 1821 portrait by Sir Thomas Lawrence, Davy is portrayed in fashionable Regency dress: a high white stock and white waistcoat with a black jacket and matching overcoat, the latter open to reveal a silk lining. He also wears gray trousers with a blue ribbon at the waist and kidskin gloves. Notice also the miner’s safety lamp near his hand (Davy’s design).
