Event description

Description

Evergreen Museum & Library's annual spring lecture series, The House Beautiful, presents a trio of illustrated talks by notable experts and authors in the fields of architecture, artistic design, and decorative arts.

The 2018 series continues on Wednesday, April 11, with a lecture on noted early 20th-century architect Laurence Hall Fowler by Amy Kimball, Materials Manager of Special Collections at The Sheridan Libraries.

Laurence Hall Fowler designed homes that are frequently described as having a subtle elegance. Steeped in the visual landscape of his native Baltimore, trained in the Beaux Arts tradition as exemplified in early 20th-century Paris and New York, Fowler was able to distill a complex decorative language into key components that made even his most illustrious homes feel comfortable and domestic. Using solid materials that could be manipulated, like cast iron and millwork, and intangible essentials like the play of light and the shape of line, to define his spaces, Fowler melded the classic elements of the Renaissance with the lessons of a modern ethos.

Talks are at 6:30 p.m. in the Bakst Theatre with a reception to follow in the Far East Room.
