Take a look inside the homes of some of your favourite artists and explore how each one reflected their spirit and creativity.

From William Morris and Pablo Picasso to Georgia O'Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, this book showcases the quiet retreats, creative hubs, lifelong homes, and holiday escapes of these key artistic figures. Author Susie Hodge introduces readers to each artist's life and work, placing the significance of the home at the heart of their practice before exploring how each residency both reflected and inspired the artist's creative output.

  • For William Morris, the building of the Red House became a life-changing project. Designed alongside architect Philip Webb, and with input from the likes of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones (whose murals still exists inside the house), the Red House became the embodiment of Morris's artistic work and an early example of what was to become the Arts and Crafts movement.
  • In 1945 Georgia O'Keeffe bought a new home in New Mexico after becoming transfixed by the surrounding landscapes, indigenous art and unique regional architecture. O'Keeffe adapted the 18th-century adobe house with modernist twists to bring in views of the surrounding landscape and natural light. It was to be her principal residence and studio until 1984.

By delving into their homes - the architecture, interiors, the lives lived there, and the work created there - we can see these artists' private spaces as reflections of their artistic output. For these inspiring people, homes are places where the boundaries between work, creativity and daily life are indistinct - they are as much as reflection of their artistic intention as the great artworks that made their name.
