'The Private Lives of Pictures' offers a new history of British art, seen from the perspective of the home. Focusing on the 19th and early-20th-century, the book takes the reader on a tour of an imaginary Victorian or Edwardian house, stopping in each room to look at the pictures on the walls. Nicholas Tromans opens up the intimate history of art in everyday life as he examines a diverse array of issues, including how pictures were chosen for each room, how they were displayed, and what role they played in interior design.
