My Studio

History

The model is John Beausoleil. Mr. Beausoleil was a dance teacher and friend of Ives Gammell. Consequently he became a frequent model for the students.1 Lack painted this interior while he was in Bosotn but after he completed his studies with Gammell. In the Studio has the distinction then of being Lack’s first Interior Genre painting.
