kramer house

BY // 07.19.16

The sitting area in the living room has an antique French sofa covered in beige linen that was purchased at the HADA Show. On the 1960-era smoked-glass-and-chrome coffee table sit ceramics by Eva Zeisel, who inspired Jonathan Adler, along with ceramics by Adler. Above the sofa hangs a collection of lithographs in shades of black and white by Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir and Matisse, and a Rembrandt etching made during the artist’s lifetime. The Kramers began acquiring Old Masters and 20th-century works on paper in the
early days of their marriage; Lauren’s parents, Francey and Dr. Martin L. Gecht, left a celebrated collection of post-Impressionist and modernist prints and drawings to the Art Institute of Chicago.
