The Well-Dressed Window

  • Arthur Satz Auditorium, New York School of Interior Design 170 East 70th Street New York, NY, 10021 United States (map)

Henry Francis du Pont, the force behind the spectacular collection of American decorative arts at Winterthur, paid particular attention to the curtains in the period rooms—the selection of fabrics, the relationship to the architecture, and the seasonal hanging of curtains to match the changing light and color. AD100 designer Thomas Jayne joins Winterthur Design Associates’ principal designer Sandy Brown in celebrating her new book The Well-Dressed Window: Curtains at Winterthur (The Monacelli Press). Jayne and Brown will discuss du Pont as one of the early leaders of American decoration and how his extraordinary taste and eye informs interior design today.

Copies of The Well-Dressed Window: Curtains at Winterthur will be available for purchase after the lecture.
