Hosted by the ICAA Philadelphia Chapter
In Phillip James Dodd's book, An American Renaissance: Beaux-Arts Architecture in New York City, which has been painstakingly researched and beautifully photographed over many years, takes a close look at twenty of the finest examples of Beaux-Arts architecture in New York City. While showing public exteriors, its main focus is on the lavish interiors that are associated with the opulence of the Gilded Age – often providing a glimpse inside buildings not otherwise viewable to the public.
At this special event for the Philadelphia Chapter of the ICAA, Phillip will discuss the five homes featured in his book – The Samuel Tilden Mansion (now The National Arts Club), the Joseph DeLamar Mansion (now the Polish Consulate), The Frick Collection, and the Otto Kahn and James Burdens (which now combine as the Convent of the Sacred Heart); as well as the patrons and architects that designed them, and their influences on Julian Fellowes’ television series The Gilded Age.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website or contact the Chapter directly for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
