This follow-up to the immensely successful Sanctuary surveys 115 American artists and the current American art scene
While the world may know their work well, these artists have rarely, if ever, allowed their personal landscapes to be seen in such an intimate manner.

‘… this extraordinary book gives a rare insight into the thoughts, dreams and ideas of the artists in the landscapes in which they work’ –
‘An impressive, large format tome … its scope is breathtaking’ –
‘An outstanding collection of candid portraits … exceptional … manufactured to the highest standards one expects from Thames & Hudson’ – f22 Magazine
‘At 600 pages, this book could easily break a bone if dropped, yet the size is indicative of the trouble it has taken Hossein Amirsadeghi to compile – and I for one am grateful for the commitment’ – The Art Newspaper
‘Encyclopaedic and photographic proof that contemporary artists still need their sanctuaries … a worthwhile endeavour’ – The World of Interiors
