"a thoughtful book of interest to teachers and students of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art." The Art Book
Shows how and why the painted domestic interior figured so prominently in 19th-century visual culture. Begins in the 1840s, examining the new ways artists imagined interior spaces as metaphors for selfhood, vision, and spatiality, ending shortly after World War I, when countless found their sense of selfhood exposed or destroyed.
