Gilman was a member of the Camden Town group, who were dedicated to the painting of modern life, particularly ordinary urban scenes. As well as street scenes, these included interiors, a subject already popular around the turn of the century.This work is earlier than the more gritty city views and shows a more demure scene, perhaps. Nevertheless, the blank expression on the woman’s face injects an air of melancholy that seems more modern than comparable Edwardian interiors.
