Under the Spell: Artist’s ​Studios and Artist's Models

As part of our ongoing exhibition at Sotherans of Sackville Street, Liss Llewellyn is delighted to present this special online exhibition – Under the Spell: Artist’s ​Studios and Artist’s Models. ​

Beyond the studio door​,​ artists recorded the spaces that defined the wider context in which they lived: bedrooms, kitchens, corridors or dining rooms.​ ​This exhibition draws together works which show the traditional, and non-traditional ways in which artists explored their working space, as well as the entourage of models and muses, wives and husbands, friends and children that often populated these scenes.
