Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio

Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio

92 Hawthorne Street
This API is deprecated, please upgrade to

Abstract painter George L. K. Morris built himself a studio on the grounds of his family’s estate, Brookhurst, after he returned from Paris in 1929; it was the first Modernist structure built in New England. By 1941, now married to painter and singer Suzy Frelinghuysen, he added a Le Corbusier-inspired house to the studio. Preserved as it was when the couple lived and worked there, the House and Studio complex sits on 46 acres of rolling terrain that abuts Tanglewood. The collection is largely comprised of their work; there are a smattering of pieces by other artists, including Matisse and Picasso. Hourly tours are available Thursday through Sunday in the summer; groups of 6 or more are accepted by appointment from May through October. (JM)
