In a broader sense, it also refers to rooms that are suitable for living and working.
In an artist's studio (painters, photographers, fashion designers etc.), good exposure to daylight is of crucial importance; therefore, roof studios facing north are often used, which results in an even incidence of light.
The studio is often not only place for production, but often also for the self-presentation of the artist. A famous example from the period of historicism is the Viennese studio of Hans Makart (1840–1884), which also hosted legendary studio parties.
Ateliers in Art
