Arthur Miller had this studio built when he moved houses on Tophet Road in Roxbury, Connecticut in the spring of 1958. It was designed as a small space and then expanded slightly in the 1960s. A back deck was added in the 1970s. Here he wrote and revised plays, stories, essays, poems and his autobiography Timebends. (A complete list of his works spanning 1958 to 2005 is here.)

Inge Morath’s photographs of the studio include Arthur at his desk, and with director Elia Kazan and producer Robert Whitehead (After the Fall).  Inge’s colleague and friend Kurt Kaindl also documented Arthur’s studio in later years.
