Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, who we are apt to call Raphael and to think of as one of the greatest artists in the history of Western Art, had a workshop of 50 people. That's right, 50 people. There were artisans and craftsmen, Giorgio Vasari tells us, who came and went and were more or less skilled.
We think of a single man, Raphael, toiling away all alone, but that is not the history. Raphael worked in a workshop with several people, just as he had worked as a child in his father's workshop. But Raphael's workshop was quite big. Unusally big, actually, and full of other practitioners.
I think about this when someone tells me that a winery is "too big" to produce "artisan" wine. Big is one thing, and low quality junk is another thing. But they aren't the same thing.
