Sanctuary is full of insights, revelations and thoughts on the modern art world and contemporary art practice, giving a vivid sense of what it means to be an artist at work today.
LONDON.- From Botticelli to Bacon, artists have always invested their personalities in their working environments, but these private spaces, often containing the visible remains of artistic ingenuity, toil and torment, are usually kept behind firmly closed doors. Sanctuary: Britain’s Artists and their Studios gives a rare and privileged insight to the studios and inspirations of 120 of Britain’s greatest living artists working today, both in Britain and abroad.

Sanctuary features a stellar cast of artists including Frank Auerbach, Ron Arad, Fiona Banner, Peter Blake, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Martin Creed, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Susan Hiller, Howard Hodgkin, Polly Morgan, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Juergen Teller, Gavin Turk, Keith Tyson, Rachel Whiteread – the list is extraordinary - and their work encompasses many different ways of thinking about and making.
