A new book, The Stettheimer Dollhouse, tells the fascinating story of the Stettheimer Dollhouse.  The dollhouse was built  over nearly two decades by Carrie Walter Stettheimer, starting in the 1920s.  What makes the dollhouse extraordinary is that all the art on its walls consists of minature versions of famous paintings.  Stettheimer knew many of the great artists of her time personally, so these reproductions are often by the original artist.  One such work is a minature version of "Nude Descending a Staircase" drawn by Marcel Duchamp.  The book, written by Sheila Clark, includes descriptions of each room in the dollhouse as well as commentary about each artist featured.
