    Default An artist's abode

    Martha Clarke, the choreographer and director, lives in a home in Sherman, Conn., that was once occupied by the painter Arshile Gorky. Her son, David Grausman, right, is a jazz pianist, who has a regular gig at the Mayflower Inn in Washington, Conn.



    She bought the 19th-century Sherman farmhouse for $155,000 in 1982.



    Gorky's onetime painting studio is where she created the choreography for "Earthly Delights," Ms. Clarke's 1984 landmark dance piece.

    A wooden giraffe in the home's glass-walled room ("Gorky called it the Glass House," she said) is not a theater memento. "I've had that since I was 7 years old," she said. "It was made by some artist in Baltimore. She's followed me everywhere."



    It has been furnished with a mixture of things that have resonance for her, including her mother's collection of pink lusterware pitchers and the antique Thonet chairs around the dining table.

    The loft area with the piano is really nice. The rest of it... I could take it or leave it.

    It's too white. I could NOT be comfortable living in a house where I was constantly worried about everything getting dirty.

    I like the coziness, but it looks like someone when on a shopping spree at Hobby Lobby for that faux weathered furniture.

    Yeah, that's where you should want your dogs to park their asses: on your kitchen counter!
    The house is not to my taste with the exception of the painting studio: I'd love to have
    such a big, light space to create art in!

    I only like the piano area the rest of it doesn't do it for me.

    I agree about the dogs HWBL that was the first thought that came to mind when I saw those dogs.
