Perils Of The Studio Inside The Artistic Affairs Of Bohemianmelbourne
Bohemians or businessmen? Moral behaviour or misbehaving with the models? In the early 20th century, there was much speculation about what was going on behind the curtains of bohemia. With its heady mixture of cheerful poverty, promiscuity and inspired creativity, the resonance of the studio is as powerful today as it was several decades ago. 'Perils of the Studio' reveals how the romance and mythology of the artists’ studio defined the character of the Australian artist. Focusing on inner-city bohemia before 1940, including the famous Grosvenor Chambers at 9 Collins Street, this book is the first attempt to examine the role of the studio in Australian art. With over 100 rarely seen works by painters, photographers and cartoonists, Alex Taylor combines stories and anecdotes drawn from newspapers and magazines in a unique cultural history. Author Alex Taylor has studied art history at the University of Queensland, University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Melbourne. He works at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne and writes on contemporary art for several magazines.
