“…the latest hot property on the East Coast real-estate market is Elaine de Kooning‘s former studio out in the Hamptons. Located in the North Woods across from Springs, L.I., the property has always been an artist’s house. It was originally built in the late 1960s as a simple “salt box” cottage by a local artist. Elaine de Kooning bought the house in the mid-1970s, after she had gotten back together with her former husband, Willem de Kooning (the house figures in the recent bio, De Kooning: An American Master), and added a studio, and later a sun room, doubling the size of the structure to some 5,400 square feet.
