The painting above the piano is actually a print from a magazine of a painting by John Newton Howitt (1885-1958) called the Symphony. Howitt actually was an illustrator who painted covers for Pulp fiction magazines. He hated it but I guess it paid the bills.
SOLDI like trying these interiors. They are very challenging exercises. The light changes rapidly just like painting outside. Trying to find an interesting spark in the things that we walk by everyday inside the house isn't always easy. I walk around the house squinting and bending, twisting and turning. If someone walked in on me, they may think I am suffering from some disease of the nervous system. Artists are so misunderstood.
