A Kitchen Interior 1918 The same stripy sheet, although in a paler blue, can be seen in A Kitchen Interior 1918 © Brighton and Hove Museum and Art Gallery (if this painting seems familiar it's because it was on the front of the Persephone Biannually No. 6). The sheet is hanging from a Sheila Maid clothes airer: no home should be without one, they are available here in the UK and will soon be available from Ancient Industries. I'd say this was also 'the artist's wife' and if the girl on the right is helping her, she looks very relaxed and bien dans sa peau – unlike the older woman in the white, nun-like dress five years later, who has an unfortunate Mrs Danvers quality - definitely prefer the atmosphere of this painting to the lobster one!
