"The home, both as structure and interior space, has been represented and examined in art history for thousands of years, from Roman illusionistic paintings of grand interiors to domestic rooms in Northern Renaissance painting. Since the mid-20th century, contemporary artists have often explored the motif of the home in an examination of social, political, economic, personal, and ideological discourse."
