Above: Ethel Sands (1873-1962), "The Chintz Couch", 1910-11, Tate Collection. I'd never heard of Ethel Sands till I came across this painting. I was really taken with it... the way the light shimmers and the texture of the wall is so compelling.
Above: Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940), Interior, 1902. What I love about this painting are the thick white lines of paint on the floor and French doors.
Above: Edouard Vuillard "Woman Before a Window". You see the same thick white stripes of paint here, and the stripes also repeated in the awning, on the sofa back, wall covering, and chair seats.
Above: Walter Gay (1856-1937) "The Library, Bréau". One of the reasons I like this is the way the room is suffused with sunlight.
