I ve visited the house recently and am currently in my last year of art school. His house is based soley off the new england cape. The five windo dormer( without acutal dorm windows) if you remeber the five rectangle windows on the front of the house. I highly recommend everyone to go and see it. If they're ever in Lincoln ma Also the Decorvada Musuem and sculpture park is right down the road and place to stop by. Along with Brayer's house down the lane. You can't go inside his but you can walk around the neighborhood. So his neighbors weren't all that upset since it was his friends.

Thanks for reminding me. We did stop by the DeCordova Museum and sculpture garden on the walk back to the train station. It's beautiful. I vaguely remember the tour guide pointing out a house down the street, which you mentioned was probably Marcel Breuer's. He, of course, wouldn't be angry--but I'm sure there had to be some upset neighbors. I doubt New Englanders at large in the 1930s would have welcomed this type of home with open arms. I'm pretty sure they were shocked!
