Georgia O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu Home and Studio
One of the most renowned painters purchased this home outside of Sante Fe in 1945. Later years of O’Keeffe’s life were spent in this home itself. The house carries a conventional new Mexico style with a large garden on the outside and minimal furniture and artwork in the inside. The artwork in the interiors ranges from a Calder mobile to Pueblo Indian pottery.
Museo Frida Kahlo
Also known as La Casa Azul this was the house where Kahlo was born and raised in. The house is situated in the Mexico city’s Coyoacán borough. The interiors of the house have been kept the same over the years with original work of Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibited along with personal letters, notes, photographs and memorabilia displayed in the home. In the rooms present upstairs you can actually be in the presence of the original furniture from Kahlo’s bedroom and studio area.
Donald Judd’s home situated in the Soho neighbourhood of New York City is completely minimal and simple in its appeal with just a single mattress covered with white sheets on the floor. The minimal resting space is accompanied with wooden tables, chairs and minimum lightbulbs. His plain loft with an abundant open space has been opened to public viewing since July 2013.
Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center
Painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s home in East Hampton holds a unique appeal with Pollock’s jazz record collection and his personal library kept untouched and left in their original places. The flooring in the barn studio holds Pollock’s signature paint splatters.
The N.C. Wyeth House and Studio
Wyeth, who was known for creating illustrations for classic novels such as The Last of the Mohicans in 1919 and Treasure Island in 1911 helped the artist to pay for his home, that still remains in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. The dark wood interiors of the home along with hanging props like canoe still remain the same in the home.
Claude Monet House and Gardens at Giverny
WWII left Monet’s house dilapidated and in complete ruins, but the 10 years restoration plan that happened in the late ’70s made the house enjoy the former glory. The visitors can now walk and view the exact garden done by the French Impressionist along with the all yellow dining space and blue sitting room.
Château du Clos Lucé
This Renaissance-style Château was once home to Leonardo da Vinci in the last couple of years of his life from 1516 to 1519. All the Frescos have been restored and there are several machines designed by Da Vinci on display. The house also includes an original copy of Mona Lisa.
Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí lived in this house built in the 1930s in Cadaqués, Spain. The house acted as both his studio and summer retreat. This unusual house features and reflects on the nature of work of the artist with a Pop Art- inspired backyard with the giant sculpture of pink lips and a stuffed bear decorated with beaded necklaces and canes.
Musée Rodin at the Villa des Brillants
French sculptor Auguste Rodin lived in a Louis XII style house just outside Paris. The site is now the second campus of the Musée Rodin. The Villa des Brillants is the places where many of his ideas were illustrated and eventually they became exquisite works of art.
Paul Cézanne lived in a small apartment located close to his studio in France. The museum which is located there now exhibits some of his still-life models along with his furniture and work tools.
Every house has a story and when the house incarnates such iconic figures, the story not just becomes interesting but also artistic.
