recreated artists’ studios

Constantin Brancusi’s studio recreated in Paris.

"Constantin Brancusi bequeathed his studio and its contents to the French state before his death 1957, on the condition that they would reconstruct it just as it was. The Romanian artist used to arrange his works in ‘mobile groups’, stressing the relationship between the sculptures and the space itself. In the 1920s he used his atelier for exhibitions and, in his final years, stopped creating sculptures altogether, focusing his efforts on their relationship within his studio. The space was partially reconstructed at the Palais de Tokyo before a full replica was produced in 1977 as part of the Centre Pompidou complex. Following a flood in the 1990s, architect Renzo Piano was tasked with creating a new permanent replica. He reproduced the layout, the volume and the light of the original atelier but housed the space inside a larger, square pavilion with a flat roof. Solid walls were replaced with glass to allow visitors to see Brancusi’s works while walking around the outside of the studio."

Francis Bacon’s studio at Hugh Lane Gallery.

"Moving Francis Bacon’s London studio to the Hugh Lane gallery in Dublin was a painstaking task. Archeologists made a survey and drawing of the Irish-born painter’s tiny studio, mapping the location of objects before they were each tagged and packed – including the dust. Walls, doors, floor and ceiling (which Bacon used as his palette) were also removed and reinstalled over a three year period. ‘It’s much easier for me to paint in a place like this which is a mess,’ Bacon said of the space. The recreated studio – which opened to the public in 2001 – is permanently housed at the Dublin gallery, complete with 7,000 meticulously catalogued items, ranging from empty tins of paint and wine crates."

"New York Botanical Garden transformed its Enid A Haupt Conservatory into the family home of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) for its spring 2015 exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life. Kahlo lived in Casa Azul (The Blue House) her entire life and became a keen gardener, particularly when she became housebound in the 1940s and 50s due to ill health. For the show, the curators recreated the property’s cobalt courtyard walls, a scale replica pyramid used to display her husband Diego Rivera’s collection of pre-Columbian art, and Kahlo’s painting station, which were displayed among ber botanically-inspired artworks."

"Using a 1926 photograph by Paul Delbo, architect Frans Postma created a replica of Mondrian’s atelier on Paris’ Rue du Départ, where he would host parties for the art world cognoscenti. Writing to his friend Winifred Nicholson in 1936, after he had moved to London, Mondrian exclaimed: ‘the studio is also part of my painting’."

William Blake’s studio recreated in Oxford.

"The London house in which artist and poet William Blake produced some of his most famous works was demolished in 1918. Curator and printmaker Michael Phillips chanced upon the floor plans for Lambeth’s 13 Hercules Buildings in the Guildhall library several years ago. Helped by accounts from artists who visited Blake’s studio and home, he was able to recreate the workspace – complete with hefty wooden press – inside Oxford’s Ashmolean gallery."

"Stilleven atelier" heb ik eerder geplaatst bij de post van 21 maart 2013, maar dit lijken mij de juiste kleuren.

Bij Stichting Constant zijn naast een overzicht van zijn werk ook een groot aantal foto's van Costant in zijn atelier te vinden. (hk)

Cindy Sherman #3

Cindy Sherman in her studio, 2003.

Sherman’s studio is as modest as she is: a large room that takes up roughly half her loft apartment in New York; a small shooting area with backdrops and desks strategically placed. Three months ago, this studio was so pristine you could lick the floor; today it’s a disaster area with clown clothing and props everywhere. Cindy’s making new work.

Ward Schumaker

The studio in San Francisco consists of three small rooms: one for drawing, one for computer, and one for painting (we call it the last our dirty projects room, and it is very dirty). In New York, my wife Vivienne Flesher and I do our illustration in the dining room of our apartment and we have a painting studio in the garment district: 300 square feet with one window, no running water, no computer, no connection to the web. So in San Francisco we’ve got everything we’d want, including food, garden, place to nap, each other. In New York it’s minimal, nose-to-the-grindstone, all attention on the work. We’ve got no history here, no old paintings or sketches lying around, no friends asking to see the work. And that means focus is always on exactly what being done now. That can be both helpful and not.
