An exhibition of images by portrait photographer Anne Purkiss, featuring celebrated artists of the Royal Academy – including David Hockney, Peter Blake and Elizabeth Frink – photographed in their studios. Present day artists are shown alongside contemporary photographs of their Victorian counterparts, drawing interesting parallels between the nature of the artist’s studio today and in Victorian times.
