The American Porch II: Painted Furniture for Garden Rooms, Porches, and Lawns, 1790-1825
As a new style of architecture emerged following the Revolution, a prominent feature in sophisticated houses was an oval or octagonal room that opened onto a porch or terraced lawns. Coinciding with this development was the production of suites of painted furniture that could be easily moved outside in order to view a garden or take in the summer breezes. Join Wendy Cooper, Lois F. and Henry S. McNeil Senior Curator of Furniture at Winterthur Museum & Country Estate, as she explores a variety of notable houses from Massachusetts to South Carolina that embraced this new architectural fashion and furnishing craze. This is the second in a three-part lecture series on the history and cultural significance of the porch in America, organized by Johns Hopkins' Homewood Museum for the 2010 Baltimore Architecture Week.
