Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday. This week’s shows are selected by artist Mark Dion. Read more about this week’s “Pictures” here.

Today’s show:In the Stuido: The Artist Photographed from Ingres to Jeff Koons” is on view at Petit Palais in Paris through Sunday, July 17. The exhibition features over 400 photographs as well as paintings, sculptures, and videos that document various artist’s studios.

Mark Dion writes:

For someone who mostly works from the dinning-room table, this exhibition elicits some serious envy. It covers the conventions of depicting artists’ studios from the birth of photography to now. With piles of oriental carpets, plaster-cast-strewn walls, and lavish furnishings, the opulent studios of the late 19th century could not be more different from the laboratory-looking vast studios representing our moment.
