The Victorian obsession with dirt and grime is underlined by nine glass dome-protected objects. If in town during the summer months the rooms would be dimly lit, shrouded by drawn blinds and curtains, the carpet folded toward the middle to protect its glorious colours. By contrast, the two little girls playing with a drum and a hobbyhorse are confined to the allotted two-tone rug, which has been carefully placed over the more valuable patterned carpet.
Helene Stromeyer was a pupil of the more famous TH Gude and G Schoenleber, who was later Professor at the influential Karlsruhe academy. She seems to have accompanied Schoenleber on his trips to the Riviera, where she painted flowers. She settled and died in Karlsruhe, an accomplished painter of flora and landscapes. She clearly had an aptitude in her early career for interior painting and possibly helped to finance her studies as a governess, hence her sojourn in England. Her work is found in many German collections.
