In this groundbreak essays he dissected the abstract, white space of the art gallery, calling it "the archetypal image of twentieth century art." In Studio and Cube he expands his interpretation to include the artist s studio, tracking the relationship between studio, artist, and artwork from Vermeer to Francis Bacon.
