This historically important view of the interior of Stephensons studio dates to the year he first took over the lease from Walter Sickert. Soon to be joined by John Skeaping, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Herbert Read and Henry Moore, the Mall Studios remained Stephensons home for the next 46 years.
