ART AND MONEY: OR THE STORY OF
THE GUILDED AGE
Speaker: David Parker
President, Associated Artists, New York, NY

Behind many of the 19th and early 20th century’s most celebrated artworks and artists were their patrons. Noteworthy in their own right, these businessmen, entrepreneurs, industrialists, intellects, and collectors, including William H. Vanderbilt and Mark Twain, used their fortunes and names to engage promising aesthetes in the beautification of their homes commissions that not only catapulted and solidified careers of history's most innovative taste makers, but also yielded some of the modern world’s most significant designs. Architect and antiquarian David Parker traces the evolution of the Aesthetic Movement through it’s patrons, its artists and the stories of their commissions, showcasing the most important decorative arts of the late 19th century.
