Artists and Their Studios

An exhibition of images from the book will be shown at the National Portrait Gallery in summer 2008. This stunningly illustrated volume offers a visual survey of 33 of the most original and provocative artists of our time. Here, we see them in their working environment - in moments of concentration, inspiration, and relaxation. McCAbe's photographs offer a revealing insight into the lives and work of the artists, while McNay skillfully extracts details about their craft, workplace, and personality - alongside his own candid observations on each subject.
