Marjorie Post and Marie Antoinette, A Story of American Taste

January 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Marjorie Merriweather Post was particularly attracted to exquisite French decorative arts with aristocratic and royal provenance. In her successive New York City residences, Post amassed an impressive collection of French treasures that epitomize the period’s taste for French royals, especially Queen Marie Antoinette.

This lecture will explore the lesser-known early collecting period of Marjorie Post in the context of American taste, and shed new light on several works of art from Hillwood’s collection.
