This exhibition is inspired by Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay ‘A Room of One’s Own’ containing Woolf’s theory that for a woman to create a great work (in the arts) it is mandatory for her to have a degree of financial independence and an uninterrupted room of her own. Matilda Julian explores what this ‘room of her own’ could be today, finding inspiration in the genres of still life and landscape painting. The exhibition represents a move towards figurative subjects, concentrating on the study of the female nude.
