COOL PICS: Hyperallergic presents ‘A View from the Easel’ a unique and timeless photographic glimpse into the interiors of artist’s studios

August 5, 2013 ART NEWS, ART PICS No Comments

The Smithsonian Institution has an awesome online archive of old photographs of artists, many in their studios, where sculptors pose midway through work and painters cradle their palettes at their easels. And the best part is that you can see more as it is a  In collaboration with the Smithsonian institution, you can witness — View from the Easel —  now appearing as a regular feature on Hyperallergic, a unique project which looks into the interiors of artist studios. From heavyweight American sculptors like Daniel Chester French, to lesser-knowns like sculptor Selma Hortense Burke (pictured below), an American scultpor who founded two art schools in the 1920’s. You see the worn artist tools, the random curiosities (like a deer antler hanging from the ceiling, for one), the array of complete and in-process work. And even if you don’t know their art, there’s a lot about an artist embedded in their studio.Some have their clothes stained with paint, others obviously spruced up for the portrait occasion. Some are comfortable and confident, others somewhat awkward. Basically, like the cluttered studios, artists haven’t changed.
