Monhegan has been an artists’ destination since the 1850s, and in the early 1900s Rockwell Kent built a house and studio, owned later by James Fitzgerald. The studio represents work practice of three significant artists, having also been used by Alice Kent Stoddard, and the sites serve as touchstones to Monhegan’s multi-generational art colony.
Georgia O’Keeffe
The Abiquiu house, garden, and surrounding views were a great source of inspiration to Georgia O’Keeffe. It is a property that she put much time and love into, making it “a house of her own.”
Russel Wright
Manitoga is the modern home, studio and 75-acre woodland garden of mid-20th century American industrial designer, Russel Wright (1904-1976). Once a ravaged industrial site, Wright transformed Manitoga into a place of extraordinary beauty.
Demuth Museum Lancaster, PA
Charles Demuth
The Demuth Museum, located in the former home and studio of Charles Demuth, maintains a permanent collection of over 40 Demuth works, and an extensive archive, a library and rotating exhibitions. As a leader of the American Modernist movement, Demuth is best known as a pioneer of the Precisionist style and a master watercolorist. Standing in his studio, visitors can look out over the family’s garden and the city of Lancaster to see the very same views that inspired Demuth’s paintings.
Arthur Dove

Helen Torr
Originally a post office and general store, this humble cottage was the home of the Modernist artists Arthur Dove and Helen Torr from 1938 until their respective deaths in 1946 and 1967. Located on the banks of picturesque Titus Mill Pond, Centerport, NY, the cottage’s surroundings provided the subject matter – light, wind, water, and sand – for some of Arthur Dove’s and Helen Torr’s most inspired paintings.
