Fred and Gwen Whicker regularly used their home and domestic life as subjects for their paintings. An article published in a Bristol newspaper on 9 April 1934 commented on the couple: 'They live in a flat here, and they go through married life with a paintbrush and a sense of humour. Mr Whicker interrupts his wife while she prepares for dinner to make her pose for a picture… Mrs Whicker sees her husband resting in a chair by the window, and makes him stay there while she paints a picture of him.
