Summary

"Endless inspiration." —Town & Country

An inspiring collection of the extraordinary private spaces of 250 of the world's most creative people, past and present

Life Meets Art presents an unparalleled, global, behind-the-scenes tour through 250 beautiful interiors from the homes of the most creative people in art, architecture, design, fashion, literature, music, film and theatre.

These inspiring, unique spaces show us where the greatest creatives in history lived their lives, honed their crafts and, in many cases, produced some of the world's most celebrated masterpieces â?? providing an intimate and insightful perspective on the masters that define artistic history.

Organized alphabetically by artist, each interior features a color photograph and a short descriptive text, including details on whether the house is open to the public or private.

This book will inspire anyone fascinated by stylish living, creative interior design and the myriad possibilities for home décor, as well as those fascinated by the personal and professional lives of their cultural heroes.

Life Meets Art includes homes from masters of past centuries such as artists da Vinci, Raphael and Rubens, composers Handel, Lizst and Verdi and writers Dickens, Byron and Coleridge. The book also showcases the extraordinary interiors of many twentieth century stars and epoch-defining talents such as architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Eileen Gray, Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, artists Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall and Henry Moore, writers Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner and Agatha Christie and musicians Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Homes from some of the most celebrated talents of today are also featured, including artists Francisco Clemente, Cornelia Parker and Gilbert and George, fashion designers Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg, designers Marc Newson and Es Devlin and musicians Moby, Jimmy Page and David Bowie.
