Everyday space and Consumption in the Work of Harold Gilman

In 1910, Walter Sickert famously declared that art should ‘avoid the drawing room and stick to the kitchen’. Sickert makes very specific assumptions about domestic space, for if there is a drawing room to be avoided, it is also more than likely that the kitchen is located below stairs, and is the domain of a female servant. In this lecture Dr Leena Kore-Schröder (School of English) argues that Gilman configured interior space rather differently, bringing the kitchen and the drawing room together in ways that cut across both gender and class.
