Themed visits

Interior Scenes

Neefs et Francken, Intérieur d'une église de nuit © Musée Fabre / Montpellier Agglomération

In the 17th century, interiors of cabarets are places for simple and sometime venal pleasures. The kitchen and living room become the private realm where everyday activities are shown. Strange rites sometimes take place in church naves, veiled in the shadowy darkness of the arches. Ensconced in the comfort of a harem, Delacroix’s melancholy odalisques seem to dream of a better life. The interior is more the reflection of the painter’s soul than of the people in the painting.
