Famous Writers in Their Rooms

The painter Elena Climent has painted the workspaces of famous writers in a mural that measures 10 feet high by 30 feet wide, composed of six panels painted for New York University’s Languages and Literature building at 19 University Place.

The mural, “At Home With Their Books,” measures 10 feet high by 30 feet wide and depicts, in six chronologically ordered panels, the writing spaces of six authors who spent part of their careers in New York. Ms. Climent said the university selected three of the authors and asked her to choose three, but stipulated that none could be living. Slide show and article from the New York Times.
