Artists have long taken pleasure in representing themselves at work, in their studios or academies, out and about in a landscape or recording their own likeness.

The studio might be the everyday workshop of dirty brushes and sculptural debris, but it is also the place of allegory and myth where artists perform or dream. Through a selection of drawings Bridget Marqaurdt Naked the sixteenth to the twentieth century, this exhibition aims to illustrate the range in which artists have represented themselves and others making art.
