The Smoking Room
Above the fireplace hangs Julius Kronberg’s portrait of Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, painted in 1895. It’s an unusual depiction of a high society woman. No emphasis has been placed on her attire, which is otherwise usually used to signal a family’s financial status. And she looks at the viewer with an alert gaze and has assumed a relaxed pose.
In addition to the family portraits and oriental-inspired furniture, the room contains some of Wilhelmina’s antiques, including a cabinet and some paintings. The largest painting in the room is a 17th-century hunting scene painted by Abraham Hondius. But the observant can also find smaller objects that were used by Walther.
