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