Augmenting the Canon: Recent Acquisitions of American Neo-Classical Decorative Arts
An exhibition of masterpieces of furniture, embroidery, silver, lighting, ceramics, and glass produced in Federal and Neo-Classical America, entitled “Augmenting the Canon: Recent Acquisitions of American Neo-Classical Decorative Arts”, will be on view at Hirschl & Adler Galleries, located at The Fuller Building in New York, NY, December 13, 2018- February 6, 2019.
Made in America, or in England, France, or China expressly for an American clientele between the first years of the nineteenth century and the early 1840s, works illustrate the breadth of American artistry and workmanship during the early years of the Republic and the collecting habits of the patrons who bought or commissioned the works at the time they were made, including many works that have never previously been exhibited or published in a scholarly context.
This exhibition celebrates the sixty-fifth anniversary of the Hirschl & Adler Galleries and will be the inaugural decorative arts show in Hirschl & Adler’s new home in the iconic the Fuller Building, a legendary art destination at the crossroads of 57th Street and Madison Avenue. The exhibition is the eleventh in a series devoted to American decorative arts.
