From Bauhaus Masters’ Houses in Germany to Frida Kahlo’s Blue House in Mexico City, these are some of the most remarkable artist homes of all time. Join Most Expensive Homes and be inspired by these homes filled with taste, curiosity, and art!
Most of the rooms in this house in Cadaqués, Spain—a series of huts that have since been converted to a museum—have windows of differing sizes and proportions in order to better view the Portlligat Bay. The surrealist painter lived and worked here from 1930 to 1982.
Pablo Picasso often painted through the night at Château of Vauvenargues when he moved there in 1959. Nestled in the foothills of Mont Sainte-Victoire in Provence, France, the area was often painted by Cézanne, whom Picasso worshipped. Occasionally the home is open to the public. Among the sights: the mural of a faun amid palm trees in the master bedroom’s en suite bath.
The Mexican artist was born and raised in Casa Azul, aka the “Blue House,” so named for its cobalt-blue walls (with green doors). Eventually, she shared it with her husband, Diego Rivera, and died there in 1954. Now it is a museum devoted to Kahlo’s memory and legacy.
If Frida Kahlo has the Blue House, the New York figurative painter Alex Katz has the Yellow House, a 200-year-old farmhouse in Maine, where Katz and his wife, Ada, have summered since the 1950s. Originally, Katz used a stable attached to the home as his studio; now he paints in a structure he can walk to in the woods nearby.
The Masters’ Houses, a group of four modular dwellings in Dessau, Germany, were completed in 1926 using a prefab construction. Among the dwellers were László Moholy-Nagy, Lyonel Feininger, Georg Muche, Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee.
