There are loads of objects to see at Beauport. Sleeper was a fan of silhouette cutouts and colored glass but it’s the folky stuff that caught my eye.
It’s been a summer for visiting eclectic homes.
Beauport aka The Sleeper-McCann House and Henry Davis Sleeper’s summer-retreat-cum-bachelor-pad is a ‘trip’ to visit with its kooky space planning and decorative motifs.
His creative ways of finding light within the house remind me of Gaudi’s Casa Batllo and Casa Mila not to mention his chimneys, albeit on a much smaller scale and in a different cultural venacular. Wondering if Sleeper ever visited Spain or read/heard about Gaudi’s work. The Casa Batllo was finished in 1906 just as Sleeper was getting started.
Some interior images to come in my next post…
I created this area to share some of my travels, art, photography & craft. The play that inspires me. For more of my paintings and crafts, you can visit me at what flow looks like today WFLLT.space
