Overview

Presented here in sumptuous photography are twenty memorable homes, including the Blumenschein House, begun in 1898 by New York artists; the Nicolai Fechin House; Mabel Dodge's house of 1918, with its hand-painted windows by D.H. Lawrence; and the Martinez Hacienda of 1804, New Mexico's finest example of a Spanish Colonial Estate.This book does not limit itself to adobe houses or to adobe construction, as do other books on Santa Fe. Going beyond adobe it uniquely covers the region's most important private homes, their interiors and furnishings, and museum houses with their magnificent gardens. All are wonderfully brought to life in stunning photographs.

Lucy Lippard, a well-known scholar and art historian, is the author of many books, including Mixed Blessings: New Art in Multicultural America.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
With a multitude of color photographs, Gross and Daley capture the architecture, gardens, and interiors of houses in Santa Fe, NM, and the Catskill Mountains. The homes depicted range from the historic homes of painter Randall Davey (Santa Fe) and writer John Burroughs (Catskills) to contemporary, modern-style dwellings. Each in some way reflects the vernacular style, whether through adobe and timber construction and the use of Native American and Mexican accessories such as rugs, baskets, and pottery (Santa Fe) or through the rustic wood interiors or decorative items such as local flea-market finds (Catskills). Both books are recommended for large interior design collections and where there is an interest. Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
