Art House tells of an extraordinary life devoted to living with art and a friendship devoted to designing homes to honor it. One of the world's foremost art collectors, Chara Schreyer has built an impressive collection of six hundred works, and her forty-year collaboration with interior designer Gary Hutton has produced five spectacular residences to house them. Art House is a breathtaking visual tour of these homes, which range from an architectural tour de force to a high-rise “gallery like home”.

Informed by scholarship and a passion for the conceptual, Schreyer's collection spans all media and includes masterpieces by artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys, Man Ray, Louise Bourgeois, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella and Eva Hesse, as well as works by contemporary artists including Gedi Sibony, Rachel Harrison, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay and many more. Art House presents a rare and intimate look at hundreds of these works at home in spaces designed to be both intellectually and materially empathetic with them.

With original photography by nationally acclaimed photographer Matthew Millman, text by Alisa Carroll, editor of San Francisco's leading design magazine, SFC&G, and foreword by Neal Benezra, director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), Art House is an inspiration for lovers of art and design.
