In 1969, Resia Schor, an artist herself and the widow of the artist Ilya Schor, bought this house, which was constructed around 1800, for her and her daughters Naomi and Mira Schor. She called it Ça Me Suffit — “It is enough for me.” Resia worked in the oldest part of the house, a former fish shack, making jewelry and sculpture. Mira painted upstairs in a small room with seashell-patterned wallpaper from the ’50s. Naomi, a noted scholar who died in 2001, worked in an upstairs room with a bay view. After Resia died in 2006, Mira began drawing in her mother’s studio, which she said “proved to be an engine for new work.” Resia and Ilya are buried in Town Cemetery, under a strikingly Modernist tombstone.
