Happy Birthday to Spanish painter and printmaker, Francisco Goya! Regarded as both the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns, his subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of artists of later generations, notably Édouard Manet, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon.
A good studio for an artist is a very important place. Our creative studios might sometimes look like a pile of rubbish or a mixed-up room, but this is where great creations are born!
Take a look at this collection of the greatest artists and their most intimate working places – their studios. I bet that you’ve seen lots of their works in museums and art history books, but the artist himself, and his studio, is often left unseen.
All these photos are intentionally mixed up – you will find both very famous and somewhat less popular painters, sculptors, architects and
even their Muses. Some of them are contemporary, but you will also find
genius classical masters as well.
