Portrait of the artist’s studio

Artists and writers become known for their art, not where they live. So it’s always interesting when we get to peek behind the curtain. A glimpse into an artist’s private space may give us some into insight to them as a person. A home is something that we all have in common. But there are homes that are very uncommon. Some of these are more like another piece of art. In some cases, like painter Francis Bacon, we like how you can almost recognize who’s space it is just by connecting the style of their work to the look of the studio.

Others, like fashion designer Karl Lagerfield, are just a work of art in themselves. His photo book collection rivals any book store.

We suspect that painter Robert Rauschenberg might’ve cleaned up a little before this photo was taken.
Writer William S. Burroughs lived and worked in a partially converted locker room of a New York YMCA. He called it “the Bunker.” Even Burroughs’ space feels like his writing.

What artist’s work space would you like to see?
