Abstract:

"Established by a pair of philanthropists who believed adamantly in the power of creativity, Yaddo has hosted some of the twentieth century's most renowned writers, composers, and visual artists." "Richly illustrated with photographs, prints, intimate letters, papers, and ephemera from archives and collections at both Yaddo and The New York Public Library - many of which have never before been seen by the public - Yaddo provides a window into the workings of this famously private institution and insight into the lives and circumstances of the artists who lived and worked there. It examines the relationship between the premier artists' colony and the ideals of democracy and individuality that inform an American vision. This volume shares the stories of individuals who visited the haven and highlights the debates and controversies that threatened to break apart its tranquility. Yaddo revisits the major moments of twentieth-century American culture and history."--Jacket.
