The author has discovered that there is no such category as the domestic interior in art. Landscape ,yes. Portraiture, yes. Seascapes , yes. Among all the categories listed in dictionaries and histories of art, there is no such thing as the domestic interior.At the end of the nineteenth century something called 'intimism' appears with Bonnard and Vuillard, but that is the closest to naming the domestic interior as an art historical category. What Borzello has found is that Bonnard and Vuillard are just the tip of the iceberg and though they are the most famous, there are lots of other painters who turn to the home for their imagery around 1900. It's an interesting theory. Fabulous pictures as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
