About the artist
Their artwork, often presenting meticulously arranged rooms from a rear perspective, stirred a mix of tranquility and intrigue. Viewers found themselves pondering whether the scenes truly depicted serenity. Ilsted, in particular, preferred using his home's interior and family members as models, capturing them in domestic settings like kitchens and drawing rooms. His work always accentuated the interplay of light on various surfaces.
Like his Danish contemporaries, Ilsted was an extensive traveler. He embarked on a study trip in 1885, exploring Italy, Egypt, Palestine, Greece, and Turkey, later visiting numerous other European countries and Morocco. He died in Copenhagen in 1933.
