Peek inside Georgia O'Keeffe's adobe courtyards. Stroll through Henri Matisse's vibrant aviary. Peruse Jean-Michel Basquiat's collection of over 1,000 videotapes. This charmingly illustrated book invites readers to peer behind the closed doors of 17 legendary and contemporary artists' homes.
Delve into the stories of seventeen legendary and contemporary artists, and explore the ways they have blended the pursuit of art with the practicalities of home. For these artists, a house or an apartment is not simply a place to sleep and eat; they transform quotidian spaces into dynamic reflections of their individual creative preoccupations.
Let yourself be swept up on a journey from Marrakech to Long Island, from a converted garment factory to a ramshackle farmhouse. See art afresh through insightful writing and vivid illustrations. Gain a deeper appreciation of a beloved artist's work or discover a new favorite. Find inspiration for how to turn your own home into a creatively rich environment.
You've been invited to peer behind closed doors, sit on well-worn sofas, and contemplate the view from windows that great artists once gazed out of. You will gain a deeper appreciation of your favorite artists' work and may just discover a new favorite. Richly illustrated throughout, this petite jacketed hardcover offers a fascinating and inspiring blend of art history, interior design, and armchair travel.
