Patrick Hughes produces A Study of the Studiolo for the British Academy

22 Apr 2015

Artist Patrick Hughes has produced a version of his recent work A Study of the Studiolo for the British Academy. It's a welcome addition to the collection of artworks already adorning the walls of 10-11 Carlton House Terrace.

Fellows, staff and visitors to the British Academy can see Hughes' reverse perspective construction based on the intarsia studiolo created around 1480 for the Ducal Palace in Gubbio.

Writing in a recent edition of the British Academy Review, Professor Martin Kemp FBA, said: "Hughes is creating a unique kind of dynamic and time-based perspective that irresistibly draws each individual viewer into the illusion."
