Presenting paintings, drawings and artefacts from the Wallace Collection and the Hunterian Art Gallery, the exhibition that this catalogue accompanied centred on two paintings: Chardin's Lady Taking Tea (1735) and Boucher's Woman on a Daybed (1743). Three essays explore these glimpses of 18th-century domestic life, while the catalogue describes and illustrates the 28 exhibits, including contemporary paintings and drawings on similar, intimate themes, furniture, china and various items associated with tea.
