Alex gave a really interesting talk about artists and their habitats, which varied from immaculately tidy to chaotic! Here are a few.
Studio of Georges Braque
L S Lowry at work
Stanley Spencer at work
John Piper in his studio
The question arose ‘Are painters influenced by their surroundings when working (for example highly organized Ken Howard) , or does the work of the Artists create their surroundings (for example Frank Auerbach’s studio covered in thick paint)?
The conclusion was that it is a bit of both!
