Prince’s studio library.

"Nearly two decades ago, the 65-year-old artist Richard Prince —who is well-known for photographing advertisements, biker magazines and book covers to create his own wry pieces—moved into a farmhouse. It sits at the end of a winding, woodsy lane in the Catskill Mountains, roughly 150 miles north of New York City. He told friends that he wanted to live and work there because it was so remote no one would visit him.

But like Donald Judd, who famously housed his minimalist art in storefronts around rural Marfa, Texas, Prince has been reconfiguring his own surroundings in playful ways—and now he’s more willing to receive company. Since 1996, Prince has steadily amassed nearly 300 acres around his home and studio in Rensselaerville, New York.
