"An Examination of Historic Finishes: Recent Discoveries Inside Homewood"

The interior of Homewood is an extraordinary example of the exuberance in decoration typical of the late-18th and early-19th centuries. The trends in decoration were propelled by the discovery of Pompeii, which began to be well known in the 1760s, and the increasing influence of classical antiquity on artistic style and the development of taste. Homewood may be seen as a Federal period ideal of this new international style.

Through microscopic examination, nationally-recognized paint historian and analyst Matthew Mosca has revealed a much more complex and sophisticated decorative paint scheme than was previously identified. Learn abouut some of the exciting and surprising discoveries he has made in Homewood's three principal entertaining rooms.
