ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE: A Guide to the Homes and Studios of Eight 19th-Century Artists in and around Paris
The Little Bookroom
This beautifully illustrated guidebook takes you beyond museum walls and into the homes and studios of celebrated artists Claude Monet, Charles-Francois Daubigny, Vincent van Gogh, Jean-Francois Millet, Rosa Bonheur, Gustave Courbet, Eugene Delacroix and Gustave Moreau, all open to the public and located either in or near Paris.
Artists in Residence tells the story of the artists and the locales that inspired them. From the majestic cliffs of Ornans that captivated Courbet to the shimmering lily ponds that inspired Monet, it describes the profound relationship between a painter, his paintings and where he chose to live. Each profile is accompanied by sumptuous color photos of the house and studio, reproductions of the masterpieces that were painted there and a portrait of each artist.
Detailed travel information for each destination includes transportation options, accommodations ranging from cozy bed-and-breakfasts to luxurious castles and traditional hotels, and dining suggestions encompassing historic cafes frequented by the artists and more formal Michelin-rated restaurants.
