Nicholas Tromans - The Private Lives of Pictures

Nicholas Tromans’s room-by-room tour of an imaginary nineteenth-century house, looking at what hung on its walls, how, why and what it meant, is entertaining, erudite and does for the domestic picture what Gaston Bachelard's Poetics of Space did for the home. It deserves to become a classic.' David Blayney Brown, art historian and curator.
