Little is known about Liliane Kaufmann, who obligingly blocked the pool light in Julius Shulman's famous Twilight photo. Even less is known about Edgar Kaufmann's second wife, who assumed hostessing duties at the desert house after Liliane retreated back to Pittsburgh.
Join Adele Cygelman, author of Palm Springs Modern and Arthur Elrod: Desert Modern Design, as she delves into the lives of the two women who were eclipsed by their better-known husband and even better-known house, and who both met a tragic end.
Following the presentation, Adele will sign copies of her books. This year Palm Springs Modern (Rizzoli, 1999), the first book to explore the extraordinary midcentury modern residential architecture in Palm Springs, celebrates its 25th anniversary in print.
