My husband and I travel the country visiting homes and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. While FLLW was at odds with the Bauhaus movement in the US, this building can be appreciated for its innovation and artistic style. Complimenting the architecture, is the spectacular art work--Picasso, Miro, Juan Gris--in addition to that of the George Morris and Suzy... More

Rare peak int the art scene from the 30 to the 60's A well informed docent gave us a great education into these little takes about artists. The architecture was as impressive as the paintings

Our tour began as soon as we parked and were whisked by golf cart up to this eclectic and intriguing house. Our guide Drew was kind and knowledgeable and we were astounded at the collection and architecture. This is a hidden treasure and well worth the trip, and gives you an amazing glimpse of a Gatsby-like couple who cared deeply... More

Very interesting house and studio to visit. It's a well-kept secret in Lenox. Although I have visited the area many times over many years I had never heard of it. The house was the first Modernist house built in New England (1941) and shows the lifestyle of the couple who built it. They were artists associated with the so-called American... More
