PRIVATE PASSIONS: Conversations with Collectors

lecture photo

Join Royal Oak as we visit a New York City private collection with a tour by the owner.

The collection is housed in a Regence revival townhouse built in 1916 by Charles Pierrepont Henry Gilbert for Frank Woolworth to give to his daughter Jessie Donahue on her marriage.

The owner has filled his home with treasures including 18th and 19th century museum-quality paintings and decorative arts. He will talk about his house and collection, and recount some of the stories about the provenance and history of several pieces.

The dining room contains a set of mahogany chairs that once belonged to financier J. P. Morgan Jr. and were used in his English country house outside London.

One of the collector's favorite pieces is a French 18th-century canopied bed that was a wedding gift from the mayor of Paris to Marie Antoinette on her marriage to the Dauphin (later Louis XVI).

LOCATION: To be given ahead of the tour

CHARGE: $95 Art & Design members and above
