Landscape set into a Still Life Interior

Artist's Room With Cat by Peregrine Higgins, pen and ink, 8 x 14"

Setting a window with a view of a landscape is a device used to combine still life and landscape. Rooms with a View: The Open Window in the 19th Century by Sabine Rewald from an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New york  has beautiful examples of this interior view.
