Product Description
 
This book invites readers into the homes of seventeen legendary and contemporary artists. Writer Melissa Wyse and illustrator Kate Lewis explore the nuances of how physical spaces inspire and support artistic practice, from Georgia O’Keeffe’s desert retreat at Ghost Ranch to Hassan Hajjaj’s radical blend of private home, tea room, and art gallery in Marrakech. Each chapter weaves in historical and biographical context and highlights fascinating details that in turn illuminate the artist’s work in a new way. The text is engaging and accessible, and the illustrations invite readers into the feeling of the space in a way photographs cannot. An epilogue prompts readers to rethink how their own home could become a more creative space.This book invites readers into the homes of seventeen legendary and contemporary artists.
