Gwen John

£7.99

Available in Stock

In earlier studies, Gwen John (1876–1939) has been depicted as a lifelong recluse, on record as desiring ‘a more interior life’. Alicia Foster argues against that view and its implications for the interpretation of the artist’s work. Instead, this study looks at John’s work in London, in Paris and in the context of contemporary artists; and examines, in particular, the relationship between women and the interior in her painting.
