Artists' Houses, by Gerard-Georges Lemaire, photographs by Jean-Claude Amiel
A beautiful vintage coffee table book that offers readers the unprecedented opportunity to turn the key and enter the private homes of fourteen extraordinary artists. We see where they lived and worked, entertained and created their most significant masterpieces. These important European and American artists ranging from Claude Monet and Rene Magritte to Vanessa Bell and William Morris, put as much care, or more, into the design of their homes and gardens as they put into the creation of their works.
Many of these houses, which have survived intact to our time, have never before been photographed, and appear here in print for the first time, providing a rare glimpse into the private world of artistic genius.
