This work is characteristic of Hansen’s painted interiors; the perspective, light source and detail carefully studied and calibrated to obtain an extremely realistic trompe l’oeil effect of space and depth. He was noted for the detail of his paintings, and for the long time he spent achieving such realism. His training in architectural and perspective drawing is evident in such studies – in his pictures of city streets, buildings in landscape settings, interiors of churches and galleries (such as The Palazzo Ducale, Venice, The Palazzo Borghese, Rome, View from the forum romanum, etc.).

This particular depiction of a domestic room is especially charming, with its harmony of coral and dull jade green, the large, sunny windows with their shaped pelmets, and the light diffused in pane-shaped beams through the lace curtains.
