Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec presents us with his poignant work titled "Sick Carnot. " Here, we glimpse vulnerability as illness invades the sanctuary of one's bedchamber. Paul de la Roche takes us back in time with his depiction of "The Young Princes in the Tower, " capturing both mystery and tragedy within these confined walls. John Everett Millais' portrayal from Anthony Trollope's novel Framley Parsonage immerses us in domesticity; it invites contemplation on love, relationships, and societal expectations that unfold behind closed doors.
