André Derain's Studio

The photos below are of André Derain's studio in Chambourcy, France as he left it in 1954. I am entranced with his studio space and thought I might share it here. I find the light quality and the room's green washed walls mesmerizing. The room is chalked full of exotic and domestic objects - all beautiful to behold but somewhat lost in the scatter of a creative process. Hope you enjoy!
