Long before they became the playground of celebrities and nouveaux riches, the Hamptons were a popular refuge for artists. The tradition continues to this day, and Studios By the Sea: Artists of Long Island's East End showcases the homes of contemporary artists Julian Schnabel, Chuck Close, April Gornik, David Salle and many others. Color photographs by Vanity Fair contributing photographer Jonathan Becker show artists in their studios and backyards hard at work, posing with their masterpieces, or romping with their families. The introductory text is by Vanity Fair correspondent Bob Colacello (Holy Terror). (June)
