Alexander Liberman: The Artist in His Studio
This product is currently sold out.
Photographer Alexander Liberman's ingenious vision made vistas of the artist studios of some of the most iconic artists of the twentieth century. If the mystery is how the artist "does it," opening the door into the sites where it happens is, evidently, only stepping into another one. His photographs show the psychic spaces of these creative minds, revealing the colour palettes and habits of organization and the objects that hold significance to the artist that we can only notice, not understand. This book takes you through the studios of the likes of Matisse, Chagall, Picasso, Dali, Le Corbusier, and many more, with full-page, full-colour reproductions of Liberman's art of the documentary photograph, inviting you in on the secret of space as much as anyone really can.
