An atelier is the private workshop of a professional artist in the Fine or Decorative Arts, where a principal master works with a number of students and apprentices, producing fine and visual art released under the master's name or supervision.

Ateliers were the standard vocational practice for European artists from the Middles Ages to the 19th century. This master-apprentice system was gradually replaced by the Academy, which became the favored method of artistic training.

The Holy Family was produced in Bartolomeo Schedoni's Atelier in Italy, along with similar paintings of the same motif. The best known example of these works is part of Louvre's Paintings collection, attributed to Master Bartolomeo Schedoni.
