Book Signing: The Doheny Mansion - A Biography of a Home by MaryAnn Bonino
12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at The Rug Affair & Antique Rug Company - 928 N. La Cienega - Like their lives, the downtown mansion of oil baron Edward Doheny and his wife Estelle was a work in progress — from its formidably eclectic Victorian exterior by Hunt and Eisen (1899), to subsequent alterations and additions by Alfred Rosenheim (1913-15) and Los Angeles' domestic architect par excellence, Wallace Neff (1933). As their wealth grew and styles changed, the Dohenys filled the mansion's interior with furnishings and art works reflecting their history and aspirations. Emulating the Belle Epoque tastes of established East Coast industrialists, they decorated — and redecorated — the mansion rooms in French Rococo, Pompeian Revival and Georgian styles. However, all the Tuscan marbles, Barbizon landscapes, gilded Corinthian columns, exquisite marquetry and Tiffany glass also cohabited with Native American artifacts.A genuine "L.A." story, the Doheny Mansion today remains a living monument to the life and tastes of a remarkable figure in American history.
