Jacob Meyer, Quiet Interior Scene

Jacob Meyer, Quiet Interior Scene

A peaceful Danish interior scene depicting a study with a bookcase and an open door. The artist, Kristian Jacob Valdemar Meyer (1895-1971), has used a palette of muted tones to convey a quiet and still atmosphere. We particularly love the view through into the other room where a grandfather clock is visible.

Meyer was the son of painter Carl Vilhelm Meyer (1870-1938) and his father’s influence is evident in this piece.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a gilded frame.
