Damian Elwes is known for the novel approach he took in a series of paintings that focused on his favorite artists' studios. For his painting of Picasso's Bateau Lavoir studio, Elwes's extensive research (from existing photographs, contemporary accounts, and Picasso's own artwork) revealed such items as a human skull, an Iberian Stone Age head, and African sculptures. In his painting, Elwes aimed to create a portrait of Picasso's mind at a particular moment in time and to reveal all of the influences that went into the creation of Demoiselles d'Avignon.
