Event description

Description

When looking at a piece of antique furniture, ever wonder what style it is? Using furniture from the DAR Museum collection, will discuss styles over time. Ranging from exaggerated proportions of the 1600s to classicism of the 1810s, Sheary will show how furniture styles changed based on the latest decorative fashions. Sheary will also consider the role technology played on influencing design by the mid-1800s. To conclude, Sheary will reveal how interest in America’s past informed popular revivals of the early 20th century.

Speaker: Patrick Sheary, Curator of Furnishings and Historic Interiors
