Art House 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 six hundred works, and her forty-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 including Gedi Sibony, Rachel Harrison, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, and many others. 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.
With original photography by nationally renowned photographer Matthew Millman, text by Alisa Carroll, editor in chief of San Francisco’s leading design magazine, SFC&G, and foreword by Neal Benezra, director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), Art House is an inspiration for art and design lovers alike.
