Arts Everyday Living: Inside the Center of Creativity–Self Portraits of Artists in their Studios

Theodore Gericault, Portrait of an Artist in his Studio, c. 1820, oil on canvas, Louvre, Paris

Artists have often produced at least one self-portrait during their careers.  However, in this case, the three painters highlighted have included their studios where they probably created their most important works of art, whether young French master of Romantic art Theodore Gericault (1791-1824), Sweden’s Carl Larsson (1853-1919) whose choice of family subjects often remind us of Norman Rockwell, and German Agnes Stamer (1856-1894) who offers us a view of her elegant studio.
