Young Adult Predictors and Midlife Outcomes of "Starving Artists" Careers: A Longitudinal Study of Male Fine Artists.
Stohs, Joanne M.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v25 n2 p92-105 1991
This study of 30 male fine artists found that most did not experience a series of unrelated job shifts, described as the "starving artist" stereotype. By midlife, artists with sporadic career lines had lower socioeconomic status and less marital stability but were equally satisfied with their lives and with what they did for a living. (JDD)
