STOCKHOLM.- The exhibition shows how home
interiors and design styles have changed from one era to the next, and
also how
the image of the home as portrayed by artists has evolved. Artists
became
increasingly interested in painting domestic scenes as the home took on
greater
importance in western culture during the 18th and 19th centuries. The
home
became a critical issue for every social group, and artists were there
to
capture the manor homes of the aristocracy, the urban apartments of the
well-to-do merchant class, and the humble farmers’ cottages. On view
through 15
August.
