Guide to Historic Artists' Homes & Studios
(998 items available)
From the desert vistas of Georgia O’Keeffe’s New Mexico ranch to Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s Hamptons cottage, step into the homes and studios of illustrious American artists and witness creativity in the making. This is the first guidebook to the forty-four site museums in the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, located across all regions of the United States and all open to the public.The guide conveys each artist’s visual legacy and sets each site in the context of its architecture and landscape, which often were designed by the artists themselves. Through portraits, artwork, and site photos, discover the powerful influence of place on American greats such as Andrew Wyeth, Grant Wood, Winslow Homer, and Donald Judd as well as lesser-known but equally creative figures who made important contributions to cultural history – photographer Alice Austen and muralist Clementine Hunter among them.
