Leading art collector Chara Schreyer’s forty-year collaboration with interior designer Gary Hutton has produced five residences designed to house six hundred works of art, including masterpieces by Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Louise Nevelson, Diane Arbus, and Frank Stella. Art House takes readers on a breathtaking visual tour of these stunning spaces, which range from an architectural tour-de-force to a high- rise “gallery as home.” Schreyer has been known to construct her abodes based on art—how well her favorite Donald Judd sculpture can be accommodated, for example. Intrigued by art because of the psychology behind it, her unique perspective has greatly influenced which pieces find their way into her possession. Each work, no matter its placement, is given its own spot in the limelight—complete with museum- standard lighting— for visitors to enjoy, including friends, family, artists, and of course Schreyer herself. An exploration of a life devoted to living with art and to designing homes that honor it, Art House is an inspiration for art and design lovers alike.
