Judith A. Pavelock
Could the mirror in your attic have reflected
images of people and places from another century?
Join Judith A. Pavelock, curator of Boscobel’s exhibition,
THROUGH THE CHEVAL GLASS: A Study of Form and Attribution
for a private, in-depth tour of the federal furniture
in the Boscobel mansion.
Ms. Pavelock will discuss Boscobel’s furnishings plan developed in the
late 1970s by Berry B. Tracy, former curator of the
American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
These limited-time, behind-the-scenes tours will conclude
in Boscobel’s gallery with a discussion of the exhibition and how
curators attribute furniture to specific makers.
Each tour guest will receive a free,
full-color, 12-page exhibition catalogue.
August 9 & 11 at 10am
August 12 & 13 at 2pm
Curator Tours are approximately 90 minutes in length
and are limited to 12 guests each.
