Be inspired by interiors this October as The Enchanted Interior exhibition opens at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. The works explore the sinister implications of a popular theme in nineteenth-century painting: the depiction of the interior as a ‘gilded cage’ in which women are pictured as ornamental objects. A must for those looking for a bit of inspiring autumn culture in the North East.
