In the early twentieth century, there was much speculation about what was going on behind the curtains of bohemia. Perils of the Studio reveals how the romance and mythology of the artist’s studio defined the character of the Australian artist.
Focusing on Melbourne’s inner-city bohemia, including the famous Grosvenor Chambers at 9 Collins Street, this book is the first major work to examine the role of the studio in Australian art. A unique cultural history, it combines stories and anecdotes drawn from period newspapers and magazines with over 100 rarely-seen works by painters, photographers and cartoonists.
