Object #87 / Arnold Schönberg in the garden of his home

116 North Rockingham Avenue
Brentwood Park, Los Angeles

In May 1936, the Schönberg family moved into a house with a garden at 116 North Rockingham Avenue, Brentwood Park, Los Angeles. Schönberg became owner in spring 1937.
“Dearest Trudi, I’m writing quickly to say that we have moved at last and we have received our furniture […] We have found a beautiful house with a garden; it is relatively very cheap. We can only have it for a year because it is to be sold. That is a snag, but in America one takes it lightly.” (Arnold Schönberg to Gertrude Schönberg Greissle, May 21, 1936)
