City and Country: Daniel Chester French and Studio Life

When: 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14

Where:The National Arts Club 15 Gramercy Park South New York City

As a sculptor of monumental, figural works for public and municipal architecture, Daniel Chester French needed little more than a large workroom with clay, plaster and the model. Yet, in both the city and the country he established gracious, well-furnished studio homes where he conducted his busy professional and social schedules. This lecture will examine French and other artists who maintained multiple studios, including those that survive as part of the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Dr. Karen Zukowski, an independent art historian, is guest speaker for this annual Daniel Chester French Lecture. Chesterwood, located in Stockbridge, MA, is the summer home, studio and gardens of Daniel Chester French (1850-1931).

A cash bar will be available from 5:00-6:00 PM.
