Fun In An Artists Studio is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Pat Hobby series, written during his later years as a writer. Pat Hobby, a down-and-out Hollywood screenwriter, is bemused when a Romanian Princess takes an interest in him and asks him to pose for a painting. This funny, slightly tragic tale is both heartwarming and funny at the same time.
