Arts Everyday Living: The Art of the Interior—Home, Beautiful, Home

Carl Ludwig Jessen, Interior of a Frisian Home, 1915, oil on canvas, Private Collection?

 

Carl Ludwig Jessen (1833-1917) is considered a North Frisian artist from the northern part of Germany.  Although he depicted a variety of subjects, I was drawn to these highly detailed and almost photographic interiors done in the last years of his career.  I’ve also included a self-portrait of Jessen.
