8.1.3: Studios and House, 1965-1997
Throughout much of her career, Falkenstein maintained studios in California and Paris. These files capture both spaces. In the early 1960s, Falkenstein purchased waterfront property in Venice, California and created living quarters with an attached studio large enough to work on her sculptures. She renovated the space again in the late 1980s. Photographs here capture this space.
