The graceful pair of Joseph Piccillo charcoal drawings, Candida Höfer's bravura photograph on the dining room wall, and the Robert Polidori peeking out from beneath the stair attest to [the] client's love of portraiture and personality. Despite the great expanse of French limestone floor, the space is warmed up by the dark, rich walnut lining the archways and openings and making its way up the Georgian-style stair. The balance of architectural materials is as important to the success of the design as the art and furnishings.
A series of drawings, etchings, and lithographs by Matisse, Bissière, and Toulouse-Lautrec—all of them portraits made in the 1920s, and with stylistic elements common to the period—line the stairway wall in this Lincoln Park residence. They strike an intimate moment in this four-story, 15,000-square-foot (1,394-square-meter) home. The bust of Shiva is from Indonesia.
