Designing the French interior : the modern home and mass media by Anca I Lasc( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designing the French Interior traces France's central role in the development of the modern domestic interior, from the pre-revolutionary period to the 1970s, and addresses the importance of various media in representing and promoting French interior design to a wider audience. Contributors to this original volume identify and historicize the singularity of the modern French domestic interior as a generator of reproducible images, a site for display of both highly crafted and mass-produced objects, and the direct result of widely-circulated imagery in its own right. To this end, a variety of media and representational techniques are discussed side by side, including drawings, prints, pattern books, illustrated magazines, department store catalogs, photographs, guidebooks, and films. Structured into three parts and including chapters by leading scholars addressing a wide range of subjects, this book is intended to broaden understanding of French interiors, from historical, theoretical and practice-based perspectives, and provides an invaluable new understanding of the relationship between architecture, interior spaces, material cultures, mass media and modernity"--
Domestic interiors : representing homes from the Victorians to the moderns by Georgina Downey( Book )

24 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the act of enclosing space and making rooms, we make and define our aspirations and identities. Taking a room by room approach, this fascinating volume explores how representations of domestic space have embodied changing spatial configurations and values, and considers how we see modern individuals in the process of making themselves 'at home'. Scholars from the US, UK and Australasia re-visit and re-think interiors by Bonnard, Matisse, Degas and Vuillard, as well as the great spaces of early modernity; the drawing room in Rossetti's house, hallways in Hampstead Garden Suburb, the Paris attic of the Brothers Goncourt; Schutte-Lihotzky's Frankfurt Kitchen, to explore how interior making has changed from the Victorian to the modern period. From the smallest room - the bathroom - to the spacious verandas of Singapore Deco, Domestic Interiors focuses on modern rooms 'imaged' and imagined, it builds a distinct body of knowledge around the interior, interiority, representation and modernity, and creates a rich resource for students and scholars in art, architecture and design history."--Publisher's description
Art, love & life : Ethel Carrick & E Phillips Fox by Ethel Carrick( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Art, Love and Life: Ethel Carrick and E. Phillips Fox exhibition tells the story of an artistic marriage and partnership, one of the most significant in Australian art. Both were painters of modern life at the turn of the last century, and the exhibition will explore the inflections of life and society in their work, from bustling scenes of markets and beaches, to intimate views of families, women and children. Born in Australia, Emanuel Phillips Fox (1865-1915) married the English painter Ethel Carrick (1872-1952) in 1905 and, over the next decade, they lived in the centre of Paris, travelling through Europe, North Africa and Australia in search of exotic subjects for their expressive paintings. After Phillips Fox died suddenly in 1915, Carrick continued her career, tirelessly promoted her late husband's work and continued to thrive on adventurous travel. The exhibition offers unprecedented access to more than 100 paintings, works on paper and ephemera exploring the artists' lives, subjects and milieu, drawn from major institutions and private collections across Australia

This study explains how expatriate South Australian woman artists established both new lives and art careers in the modern metropoles of Paris and London in the early years of the twentieth century.
