This interior captures the subtle play of luminous
tones in an ordinary domestic setting. Such a
presentation, along with a delicate handling of
forms, typifies Gwen Johnâ€™s work from this period.
John rendered Interior, the Brown Tea Pot either in
Meudon or Paris, France, several years after her
Corner of the Artist Room, Paris (about 1907â€“9).
This earlier paintingâ€™s luminosity inspired Garry
Fabian Miller to create his series of photographs
Burning (with Gwen), shown here.
