Most of us have to stay at home; wether we like it or not. In my opinion the quarantine shouldn’t be viewed in such a bad light. This is the time to rediscover the simple joys of life, such as reading a good book or trying a new recipe. Below, you can take a look at some paintings, showing off mundane everyday activities at home.
Mary Cassatt’s 1878 painting Little Girl in a Blue Armchair
Shona McAndrew‘s painting is probably the most relatable of all
A Woman at her Toilet by Jan Steen, 1663
This is probably my favorite piece from Hilary Pecis
My Parents, 1977, David Hockney
When Home Won‘t Let You Stay
These posts put self isolation in a different light for me and made the simple things in life seem a bit more atmospheric.
