Particulars

Phd project: Interior Spaces in Belgian Art and Architecture (1880-1914): Domesticity, Materiality and Intimacy

Supervisors: Dr. Claire Moran (School of Arts, English and Languages) and Prof. Margaret Topping (The Graduate School)

Research Statement

My research focus on Belgian interior paintings in the end of the nineteenth century, against the backdrop of architectural changes in the layout of houses, notably in the Art Nouveau style. It deals with the concepts of domesticity, materiality and intimacy, with a particular emphasis on men's involvement with the domestic sphere, the material culture of artists' homes and the meanings of threshold spaces in the representation of interiors. My corpus of study includes (but is not confined to) James Ensor, Fernand Khnopff, Georges Le Brun, Louise De Hem and Rik Wouters.
