Art House

It's about collecting work by people who have positively changed the course of history. - Chara Schreyer Based on research, new acquisitions, and an occasional midnight inspiration, Schreyer constantly refines the placement of pieces, deepening dialogues and exploring juxtapositions until the installations sing. The collection is her own masterpiece. -- Alisa Carroll Leading art collector Chara Schreyer's forty-year collaboration with interior designer Gary Hutton has produced fi residences designed to house six hundred works of art, including masterpieces by Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Louise Nevelson, Diane Arbus, and Frank Stella. 'Art House' takes readers on a breathtaking visual tour of these stunning spaces, which range from an architectural tour-de-force to a high-rise "gallery as home." Schreyer has been known to construct her abodes based on art--how well her favourite Donald Judd sculpture can be accommodated, for example. Intrigued by art because of the psychology behind it, her unique perspective has greatly influenced which pieces find their way into her possession.
