Studio Interior

  • George Ault, Studio Interior, 1938, watercolor and pencil on paper, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Transfer from General Services Administration, 1971.447.4

Exhibition Label
Each day before starting to paint, Ault made his studio as neat as possible. Only after everything was in place did he sit down at the easel. In this watercolor made soon after he moved to Woodstock, New York, Ault made order twice: once in the actual studio, and again in the painting recording it.
