City and Country:
Daniel Chester French and Studio Life

Thursday, September 14
6:00 PM  /  Lecture and visual presentation

As a sculptor of monumental, figural works, Daniel Chester French needed little more than a large workroom with clay, plaster and the model. Yet, in both the city and the country he established gracious, well-furnished studio homes where he conducted his busy professional and social schedules.    This lecture will examine French and other artists who maintained multiple studios, including those that survive as part of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.     
   Dr. Karen Zukowski, an independent art historian and member of the NAC, has been invited as a guest speaker for this annual Daniel Chester French Lecture. Chesterwood, located in Stockbridge, MA, is the summer home, studio and gardens of Daniel Chester French (1850-1931).

Refreshments will be served from 5:00-6:00 PM.

A reservation is suggested for all events. Please click HERE to RSVP now.

This lecture has been generously underwritten by Doyle Auctioneers and Appraisers and the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
