Moving the Museum: Artists research.

To gather information of the artists which I have chosen, I relied on both books and articles. Andy Tuohy’s book entitled ‘Great Modern Artists A to Z’ was of great use as it contained information of 3 out of 10 artists whom I chose to be part of my concertina.

All 10 artists chosen has work displayed at the base museum at the time of this post. These artists include:

  • Francis Bacon
  • David Hockney
  • Lucian Freud
  • Pierre-Auguste Renoir
  • Man Ray
  • John Kyffin Williams
  • Spencer Gore
  • Charles Sargeant Jagger
  • Walter Sickert
  • Augustus John

The research discovered was then documented in my sketchbook using the most significant factors of the artsts life. The information found is as follows:
