Paula Crevoshay, Crevoshay Jewelry

The Baroque Period, between 1600 and 1725, saw a huge increase in world trade, technological development, social upheaval and rapidly growing wealth, which supported new forms of artistic expression that touched all facets of art, architecture, fashion and jewelry.

The Vogue of French Wallpaper Decors in America: Trendsetters from Jefferson to Henry Du Pont

Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz, French Heritage Society

Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz will introduce us to a mural art form that many know little about. Yet, it is an important page in the history of the decorative arts and interior design. Very much in fashion since the XVIII century, English, French and Chinese wallpapers enhanced the homes of aristocratic and prosperous families throughout Europe, Russia and America. Some of the early trend-setters included Thomas Jefferson, Sir Horace Walpole, and Marie Antoinette. The vogue of these decors continued in America in the XX century amongst those involved in the decorative arts: Henry du Pont, Henry Sleeper, Frances Elkins and David Adler, Nancy McLelland, and Jacqueline Kennedy.
