Description Kentucky Home de Pieter Estersohn:

In" Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms, "pre-eminent architectural and interiors photographer Pieter Estersohn guides us through Bluegrass Country, the legendary landscape around Lexington, Kentucky. The wealthiest town west of the Alleghenies prior to the Civil War, Lexington has a rich architectural and cultural history that is manifest in the elegant houses within and around the center. Equally compelling is the equestrian heritage that has made Lexington the "Horse Capital of the World." Among the properties presented are Ashland, an Italian-inspired villa built for distinguished statesman and orator Henry Clay- Pope Villa, one of only two extant residences by Benjamin Latrobe, the architect of the U.S. Capitol- Waveland, a completely intact Greek Revival estate from the 1830s- and Pleasant Hill, the largest restored Shaker community in the country. Dramatic aerial photographs celebrate the rolling landscape and expansive horse farms, including Gainesway Farm, a 1,500 acre site that has produced an impressive roster of legendary Throughbreds. "Kentucky "is a multifaceted and compelling portrait of a unique part of our country that combines a reverence for history and Southern traditions of hospitality and generosity with a vital present. Pieter Estersohn is a photographer of architecture and interiors. His work regularly appears in major shelter magazines, including "Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Elle Decor, " and he has contributed to many interior design and lifestyle books.
