The Smoking Room

The Smoking Room is one of three parlour rooms on the first floor that are for gentlemen. The other two are the Billiard Room and the Armoury. Walther von Hallwyl sat at his desk to attend to his correspondence.

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.
