GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting Everyday Life


BEDROOMS



Unlike in these days, royal bedchambers of old were semi-public places — if paintings and surviving palaces are to be believed. Affairs of state were conducted from four-poster beds, and births had to be witnessed by ministers. It was the duty of court painters to record such rituals.
Eighteenth century Rococo boudoirs had a role in etiquette: Madame de Pompadour often received the French King Louis XV in hers. However, in modern art a bedroom seems to be a place of escape from the stress of life.
