I search for paintings that capture a special insight into an artist.
It is rare to find an artist studio, his atelier.
As in interior paintings, the empty room gives us an invisible sense of the artist.
The studio is just as he worked, not readied for visitors.
A drawing is left lying on the floor...
We can imagine the artist, on his knees, sorting through his nearby portfolio.
One painting is casually propped on the table, facing the wall...
wine and coffee out.
A landscape still rests on his easel and we learn what subjects caught the artist's eye....
perhaps giving a clue to what part of France he lived??
A true peek into the artist's life !
