Discover the Artwork at JRH
What says welcome home better than your artwork. Bits of treasures from past travels evoke the people, places, and encouragement you were given to get “THAT PIECE OF ART” which would look perfect in your home. The wholly owned art collection of The John Randall House found a new home in Provincetown when Don relocated from North Carolina. The eclectic collection consists of pieces acquired from travels throughout the United States and abroad. The collection continues to grow along with the interest in local masters and up and coming newcomers. Not only does original art hang in every guest room, but all of it has a connection to travel, rediscovery of self and pieces that stirred something in me.
WHERE ART AND HISTORY MEET
Step into the foyer of the John Randall House and you are surrounded by the eclectic sampling of art from around the world. Directly in front of you is a stained glass window salvaged from a church on the cape. The light-filled bistro to your left is filled with pictures of whaling boats and a stainless steel whale in tribute to Thomas S. Taylor, Captain of the Rising Sun, the whaling boat captain who originally built the house.
The art of Sid Dickens internationally renowned for his historical, symbolic and sometimes gothic motifs, sensual dark tones, and sculpted tridimensional tiles adorn the walls as you ascend the stairway to the second floor.
Nearly every corner of the guest house and rooms are graced with art, most notably, the Matisse, Fleur-de-lys on the second floor of the house and the Romero Britto, Spanish Sensation in room 2. Sprinkled throughout the house are works from Hilda Neily, James Frederick, Cassandra, Shania LeClaire Riviere , Michael Moss and many other local artists.
