Ships in 2-10 Days
More than 600 archival color and black-and-white photos take readers inside the magnificent Hotel des Artistes on Manhattan's West Side. This is the well-researched, untold story of the artists, returning from stints in Paris in the early 1900s, who convinced Manhattan businessmen to invest in an arts colony on West 67th Street. Readers are invited on a tour of the north-light studios, salon ballroom, and iconic caf where America's great painters, sculptors, writers, illustrators, actors, and dancers created a beehive of creativity. In addition to stories of select artists, a directory lists the names of the hundreds of tenants who populated the building from 1917 to 2020--an army of artists whose work collectively changed the world. This book is a treasure trove for creatives, historians, and the large network of artists and their families with ties to the landmark Hotel des Artistes.
