Artists Living with Art invites readers into the homes and personal art collections of some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists, including Cindy Sherman, Helen and Brice Marden, Chuck Close, Rachel Feinstein and John Currin, Glenn Ligon, and Pat Steir. Here readers will find beautifully renovated lofts in SoHo, 19th-century Brooklyn brownstones, and a restored farmhouse in the Hudson River Valley, all filled with cherished artworks as well as objects, textiles, and ceramics set on display in artful and creative ways. Photographed by Oberto Gili, these gorgeous interiors will inspire readers to rethink the display of their own art and treasured possessions, whether it’s a perfectly placed painting or rocks found on a beach.

“While salivating over the whitewashed walls and spacious home offices of some of the most successful artists working today is certainly enjoyable, we think the most fascinating part of the experience is seeing their coveted art collections, and making connections between artists.”Artnet —
