Artists' Studios (Black Dog Publishing)

by MJ Long

MJ Long - newly appointed Visiting Professor to the School - has just published a book on Artists' Studios (Black Dog Publishing) - a highly personal account of the development of these studios from the 1970s to the present day. Each of the studios is an exploration into the working methods and lifestyle of the artist based on friendship, and a keen interest in the art produced; artists include Kitaj, Blake and Auerbach. MJ Long was deeply involved with the development of the British Library in partnership with her husband Colin St John Wilson. Her partnership Long & Kentish (founded 1994) has carried out many projects including the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall.
