Event Announcement: Fellows Lectures Pt. I, Maison Félix & Gilded Age Lighting

This Wednesday, July 26th at 11 a.m., two of my fellow Fellows at The Preservation Society of Newport County will be presenting their research at Rosecliff. Anna Rose Keefe will be presenting on Félix, the dramatic and largely forgotten French couturier who clothed such iconic Gilded Age figures as Sarah Bernhardt, Virginie Gautreau (John Singer Sargent's 'Madame X'), and Caroline Schermerhorn Astor. Amber Wingerson will be discussing the technologies and etiquette of Gilded Age interior lighting, from 'brilliant' ballrooms to dimly lit dining tables.

Advance registration is required, and is available through The Preservation Society's website (here).
