Carl Holsøe (Danish 1863 - 1935) captured a remarkable feeling of light in this interior.

The enlarged image below shows how impressionistic the painting is in its close-up detail.
The light dissolves the forms in the window, on the table. And the light overwhelms the local colors on the rug and on the floor tiles. The base of the chair and the little table are soft and downplayed, and the darks are not too dark in the far room.
Holsøe was a friend of Vilhelm Hammershøi, who did similar subdued interiors.
