The Daily Routines of Famous Artists and Scholars

 

Published last year (23 April 2013), Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work took an in-depth look at the daily routines of 161 of history’s most inspiring minds.

Data visualization artist RJ Andrews of Info We Trust created an amazing infographic of 16 of the 161 creative masterminds featured in Currey’s book.

The routines are fascinating. From the average number of hours slept, to the balance between work and personal life, the insights are both surprising and inspiring. Be sure to check out the original post on Info We Trust where you will find the full 3600 x 5400 resolution infographic.

You can also find Mason Currey’s book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work on Amazon.
