Genius fascinates me, as I am sure it does many others. By its nature it is hard to understand, but I think seeing artist’s creative space gives a clue to their genius; how the artist sees, thinks, what influences them, etc.
Over the years I’ve earmarked photos of artist’s studios for this very reason. It’s an ever growing list, but below are some of my favourites.
Henri Mattisse (Hotel Regina, Nice)
Cy Twombly (Rome)
Willem de Kooning
Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (Le Crobusier)
