Counted among the most important artistic commissions at Evergreen House are three rooms designed between 1922 and 1924 by the revolutionary stage designer and artist Léon Bakst. Commissioned by Ambassador John Work Garrett and Mrs. Alice Warder Garrett, these spaces serve as unique American transmissions of European post-war modernism.
