Interior With Chairs & Book

This early 20th-century oil painting by Danish artist Carl Fisher (1887-1962) depicts two chairs and a book. It’s more akin to a still life than a scene.

On the surface, it appears quite simple, with the chair rendered at an angle - a book placed on top. But this chair is quite a star as it appeared in several of Fischer’s masterpieces.

It’s likely that a set of these chairs were housed within his own home as he often painted scenes including them. For instance, his work ‘Interior with the Artist's Wife (1920)’ along with ‘Young Girl at a Commode (1938)’.

Fischer studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
