Daily Life in Art by Beatrice Fontanel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


How do we keep a room warm? Who gets the privilege to sleep in linen? Why are the shelves placed so high? How do people decorate the walls in their homes? What modifications has the arrival of running water and electricity produced on our way of living? From the Middle Ages to the first decades of the 20th century, the 'home' underwent a number of technical revolutions or practical improvements of which paintings, frescoes, and miniatures are precious witnesses. The rich selection in "Daily Life in Art" invites the reader to a detailed exploration of history of domestic objects, mentalities and intimate territories. Nearly 100 images illustrate this sensitive look at the secret places of our daily lives.
