Artists in Their Studios, Images from the Smithsonian's Archives of
American Art by Liza Kirwin with Joan Lord

Artists in Their Studios offers a unique glimpse at the lives and studio
spaces of more than seventy-five important American artists from the
late nineteenth century to the present. With rarely seen photographs and
primary source materials-letters, lists of painting supplies,
handwritten notes, exhibition announcements, and other personal
effects-from the Archives of American Art, this beautiful book brings
the reader into each studio space, providing an intimate perspective on
each artist at work and exploring topics such as artists working abroad,
artists and their models, and the studio as a social space. A separate
section containing complete transcripts of all of the supplementary
materials further enriches this collectible volume. Among the artists
featured are: Alexander Calder, William Merritt Chase, Chuck Close,
Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Arthur Wesley Dow, Marcel
Duchamp, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, Jackson Pollock, Robert
Rauschenberg, John Singer Sargent, Andy Warhol, and N. C. Wyeth.

The author, Liza Kirwin is the curator of manuscripts and Joan Lord is a
curatorial assistant at the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian
