Frank Auerbach corrects the comparison between art and travelling: 'It's not a question of a protean adventurer – the traveller's unaltered and what he sees changes. Likewise the artist is the man in front of the writing-pad or in front of the easel, and things around him change and he doesn't change – that's the connection.' Auerbach has worked in the same studio since taking it over from his friend and fellow Royal College student, Leon Kossoff, in 1954.
