Artistic inspiration can be found not only in your own hotel, but everywhere on the island. Writers, photographers, painters: Long Island was and is the home of many artists and served as a source of inspiration for them for many years. World-famous works of art have been created on the island: The American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald lived on Long Island from 1922 and published his world famous novel "The Great Gatsby" in 1925. Also the painter Jackson Pollock moved to the island in the 40s. He joined an artists’ colony, which was founded there at that time by many painters as a living and working community. Pollock’s studio is now open to the public and many art lovers are drawn to the painter’s former studio to view his drip painting works. This is a special painting technique which can be traced back to the artist Max Ernst, but which became world-famous through Pollock. Boutique hotels on Long Island are therefore in suitable company and provide a special atmosphere for their guests with individual design and a beautiful style.
