Not a Matisse! This is an original painting by Damian Elwes, a contemporary artist who creates pictures of famous artist's studios as he sees them in his imagination. Despite his perfectly clear website listings, his Studios paintings — and other work in which he pays homage to recognizable painting styles — regularly appear online mistakenly tagged as authentic paintings by the well-known artists he has imitated . Below is another example of his Matisse studios.
