Inspired By: Vintage Art Studios

Crumpled paper, splattered paint, unfinished sketches – the  artists’ studio is a sacred space to us, and we love getting a glimpse into the creative spaces of the artists we love. We’ve stumbled on some vintage snapshots of some of these artists in their studios, and we’re excited to share them with you below – with the appropriately-toned specs to match.
