Assouline's Art House coffee table book chronicles an extraordinary life dedicated to living with art, and a friendship devoted to designing homes to honor it.
One of the world’s leading art collectors, Chara Schreyer has built a staggering collection of 600 works, and her 40-year collaboration with interior designer Gary Hutton has produced five spectacular residences to house them. Art House is a breathtaking visual tour of these houses, which range from an architectural tour-de-force to a high-rise “gallery as home.”
Informed by scholarship and a passion for the conceptual, Schreyer’s collection spans all media and includes masterpieces by artists including Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys, Man Ray, Louise Bourgeois, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella and Eva Hesse, as well as work by contemporary artists.
Art House features a rare and intimate look at hundreds of these works at home in spaces designed to be both intellectually and materially empathetic with them.
