About this exhibit:
Charlotte and Louis Hyde not only collected paintings, sculptures and works on paper, they also had a keen eye for furniture. As you walk through historic Hyde House, the furniture may seem secondary to the Old Master paintings, ancient and modern sculpture, and Renaissance tapestries. However, the chairs, tables, chests, and beds are work of art themselves. Decorating in Style: Furniture from the Permanent Collection invites visitors to examine furnishings from the House in a new context, alongside unique pieces of furniture from the vault – some which have never before been exhibited. The furniture on view in this exhibition spans five centuries, from the Italian Renaissance, Spanish Baroque, French Rocco, English Georgian Era, and American Mid-Century Modern.
