Where Gertrude Whitney Made Her Art

Where Gertrude Whitney Made Her Art

Two studios of the sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, one in Greenwich Village and one in the Long Island town of Old Westbury, survive but are vulnerable. The Village studio, shown here, is a former hayloft on Macdougal Alley that she bought in 1907. It was the first piece of a complex of four contiguous townhouses and carriage houses on West Eighth Street that she purchased over time and ultimately transformed into the first home of the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1931.
