Artist and Studio

Alex Katz home and studio.

"The poured-acrylic floor is vaguely evocative of a 1970s basement rec room. The furniture—what there is of it—looks haute thrift shop: a minimalist leather sofa teamed with another of ornately carved wood with velvet upholstery. The telephones are not only corded, they’re rotary. The quirkiness is anything but a retro pose, however; Alex Katz has been living and working in this cavernous top-floor loft in the heart of SoHo since 1968.”

Salvador Dali’s studio and home (now a museum) in Port Lligat, Spain, right on the water’s edge looking out towards several small islands.

By 1959, Dali spent summers in Port Lligat, autumn in Paris, and the rest of the year in New York.
