The sweep and quality of [Praz's] mind raises this book far above the level of most others on this well-explored topic.Reseña del editor:
An indispensable reference source for anyone with an interest in period styles of furniture and decoration, this renowned book comprises a complete survey of domestic interiors portrayed in art from the ancient world to the late 19th century. Available again after some years out of print, it presents a wonderfully rich collection of pictures of a type seldom reproduced anywhere. Around 400 paintings and watercolours from all over Europe, Russia and America record with faithful accuracy rooms of all periods and their contents: the furniture, fabrics, carpets, pictures and wall-coverings. This is a classic text that goes beyond scholarly commentary to present a fascinating cultural history of man in relation to his domestic surroundings.

Descripción Thames & Hudson November 2008, 2008. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. The appeal of this extraordinary book lies in its rapt obsession with the details of the domestic interior, borne out in a wonderfully rich collection of pictures. These charming paintings and watercolors, mostly dating from 1770 to 1860 and coming from all over Europe, Russia, and America, record with faithful accuracy the shape of a room, the pattern of a carpet, the furniture, pictures, fabrics, and wall coverings, the hang of the curtains and the fall of the light they admit.The pictures find their place in a complete survey of domestic and some more palatial interiors portrayed in art from the ancient world to the late nineteenth century, and including works by Vermeer, Hogarth, Durer, Degas, and Vuillard. The text goes beyond scholarly commentary to present an evolving picture of men and women in relation to domestic surroundings, full of human interest, wit, and wide-ranging cultural references.Mario Praz (1896 1982) was Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Rome. The most celebrated of his many other books is The Romantic Agony. This prize book on the subject of domestic decoration . . . enchantingly informs us about the evolution of taste and comfort.
