The House Beautiful III: Kate Markert
Marjorie Merriweather Post purchased the grand Washington, D.C. estate now known as Hillwood in 1955, when she was 68 years old. She intended for it to become her legacy, a museum which would show her superb collections of French decorative arts and Russian Imperial art. She spent two years completely renovating the 26,000 square foot mansion and installing many garden "rooms" around the 25 acre estate. Join Kate Markert, executive director of Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens, for an exploration of how Post's refined taste and keen eye produced one of the most exquisite domestic environments of her time, inviting a glimpse into a "way of life that is fast disappearing."

A reception with the speaker will follow the lecture.
