The Inspiration of Home

A sunny window overlooking the garden, heavily-laden bookshelves, an Art Nouveau vase, love and an Eames chair... perhaps the most perfect study ever. From this very private glimpse into the artist's home, it isn't hard to deduct why his works focused so consistently on themes of marriage, fidelity, joy and appreciation.
