This innovative book examines the changing ways in which the domestic interior has been represented in the West over the last 500 years. Looking at a rich array of depictions of the home, including paintings, novels, television, film, diaries, sketches, and photographs by such artists as Vermeer, Hogarth, Alfred Hitchcock, Bill Brandt, and many others, Imagined Interiors features everything from grand decorative schemes to simple cottages. It takes a completely new and original look at a subject not previously covered in this depth and breadth.
