A celebrated weaver and textile designer, Jack Lenor Larsen is internationally known for the artwork he creates. This is the first book to document and celebrate his life as its own work of art, through his home and extensive gardens in the Hamptons - Longhouse Reserve. Longhouse's gardens are open to the public; visitors have the opportunity to experience Larsen's contemporary sculpture collection, featuring works by diverse artists such as Sol LeWitt, Dale Chihuly and Yoko Ono, as well as the grounds themselves - ever changing, subject to seaons and Jack's creative desire to experiment and change. The lush color photography of Molly Chappellet, a longtime friend of Longhouse, captures the house and gardens through many design iterations and seasons. Guiding texts throughout the book articulate Larsen's philosophies about creating art and living life fully. A book for fans of the garden and of contemporary art.
