“Dust motes dancing in sunbeam” by Vilhelm Hammershøi (Denmark, 1864-1916), 1900.

Hammershøi — the painter who painted silence.
How does one paint silence?
Will stillness do?
Intemporality?
How do you perceive it through art?
A representation without a story?
A rush of memories and thoughts?
Or rather their quieting?
