About

We often forget that 19th- and 20th-century artists didn't only make paintings to be displayed in galleries. They were often commissioned to make decorations for the homes of their wealthy patrons. 

In this talk, Belle Smith looks at schemes by Renoir and Vuillard from the early 1900s, both made for luxurious Parisian apartments, and explores the subject matter they chose.

After the talk, Belle will be able to answer any questions you may have.
