In the 1950s, Bratby painted a number of domestic interiors in which realism was combined with an aggressively expressionist style. In an article published in 1954 about trends in recent British art, the critic David Sylvester used an example of Bratby’s work (a depiction of a kitchen sink) to draw attention to the new interest amongst younger painters in subjects which stressed the banality of life – thereafter coined 'kitchen sink' realism.
