New York School of Interior Design, NYC, September – December 2003
This unique exhibition explored the inspiration and innovation of American frame design. A selection of 68 American and European frames from the Gill & Lagodich Collection explored the origin of ideas by American frame makers and demonstrated the evolution of designs and techniques across countries and centuries. Included in the show were frame designs of Stanford White, James McNeill Whistler, Charles Prendergast, Max Kuehne, Frederick Harer, and Hermann Dudley Murphy. The exhibit showed how frames document changes in American decorative arts history, and also represent the marriage of decorative art with fine art.
52-page exhibition catalogue, 4/color throughout, 80 frame images. The book is a compilation of scholarly essays with footnotes; 3-page glossary; selected bibliography; written by Tracy Gill.
The catalogue is available to order from Gill & Lagodich.
