In my blog I occasionally show picures of artists' studios. I love visiting them but there are plenty that I will never have a chance to see for the simple reason that they have vanished. Alexander Liberman was a photographer who set out to visit artists after World War II to document their lives and inspiring surroundings. Here is a picture of Dutch painter Kees van Dongen in his vast Paris studio, 87 years of age, surrounded by his paintings and cherished objects, reading, his desk cluttered, he almost disappears in the space.
