Event description

Description

Please join the New England Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art for a private tour of several of the most treasured homes, studios & gardens of The Cornish Colony, led by ICAA board member and landscape architect Dan Gordon in association with Judith Tankard, co-author of A Place of Beauty: The Artists and Gardens of the Cornish Colony.

At the turn of the twentieth century, a group of America’s most gifted sculptors, painters, architects, landscape architects, writers and politicians were drawn to the highly scenic landscape of Cornish New Hampshire. There they pursued their common artistic and cultural interests, enhancing the natural landscape with homes and gardens which featured works of art, and were in and of themselves, works of art. The Cornish Colony, as it was known, created an idyllic place reflective of The Golden Age of the American Renaissance.

The tour will explore the legacy of the Cornish Colony with visits to several noteworthy properties including: Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, home & studio of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens; High Court, master work of architect Charles Platt; and Brook Place, home of Landscape Architect Ellen Shipman. The tour also includes: round trip transportation from Wellesley & Woburn Massachusetts; admission to all properties; presentation of The Cornish Colony by Judith Tankard; lunch and refreshments.

Support for this event is generously provided by R.P. Marzilli Landscape Contractors.
