Description

by Valerie A. Balint
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. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this is the first guidebook to the 44 site museums in the network, which are 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, many of which were designed by the artists themselves.
