A good studio for an artist is a very important place. Creative studios might sometimes look like a pile of rubbish or a mixed-up room, but this is where famous artists paintings are born!

Take a look at this assemblage of the greatest artists and their most intimate working places – their studios. I bet that you've seen lots of their works in museums and art history books, but the artist himself, and his studio, is often left unseen.

From Salvador Dali's artist studio full of beautiful women, Pablo Picasso's decorated hall to David Lynch's industrial looking creative space and Francis Bacon's utter chaos. All these photos are intentionally mixed up – you will find both very famous artists and somewhat less popular painters, sculptors, architects, and even their Muses. Some of them are contemporary, but you will also find genius classical masters as well.

Enjoy the collection!
