Frances Burney's experiences of conversational culture at Streatham and St Martin's Street are crucial to an understanding of her early artistic identity. While the influence of the Streatham coterie on Burney's professional development is well established, and often seen as an antidote to the private circulation models of the bluestocking circle, the vibrant artistic and intellectual network of her father's household is formative. Her experiences of all of these coteries would ultimately enable Burney to synthesise a hybrid blend of domestic privacy and artistic professionalism that she would valorise in her later work, and idealise in Memoirs of Doctor Burney.
