Figures in a Room - the Domestic Interior

Figures in a domestic interior invite us to gauge their social standing, or play out intimate dramas of family life


The “conversation piece” was a favourite type of eighteenth century portrait composition, usually showing elegant figures in a suitable surrounding. It belongs, however, to a wider range of imagery where figures in a domestic interior invite us to gauge their social standing, or play out intimate dramas of family life which can range from the erotic to the moralistic. A chance to assess the many ways in which scenes of home life in all classes of society can reveal the preoccupations and expectations of their times, with examples including Dutch 17th century art, eighteenth century painting and the work of the Impressionists.
