Anna Heyward reviews In the Studio: Paintings, curated by John Elderfield, at Gagosian Gallery, New York, on view through April 18, 2015. The show features paintings of the artist's studio by Wilhelm Bendz, Honoré Daumier, Thomas Eakins, Lucian Freud, Jean-Léon Gérôme, William Hogarth, Matisse, Picasso, Constantin Brancusi, Alberto Giacometti, Louis Moeller, Alfred Stevens, James Ensor, Jacek Malczewski, Diego Rivera, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, Carl Gustav Carus, Adolph von Menzel, Jim Dine, Philip Guston, Jasper Johns, Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, Jacek Malczewski.

Heyward writes: "There is an Eakins from Philadelphia, a Freud from Tate London, and Diego Rivera’s The Painter’s Studio or Lucila and the Judas Dolls, which has never been shown in the United States before and is on loan from a collection in Mexico City... The show’s works range from early pictures of artists at easels, such as a Hogarth from London’s National Portrait Gallery, to the abstraction of high modernism (two Picassos), to the studio walls of Lichtenstein and Diebenkorn."
