By

Harvard Art Museums

A smiling young woman, sitting outside by a blue wall, gestures toward a painting that appears to be floating. It represents a woman in 19th-century clothing seated in front of a large window, with a view of housetops and the horizon.

Sophia Pasalis will examine how interior life is portrayed in art and the boundary between public and private life and inside and outside.
