Rococo & Classicism in Proprietary Philadelphia: The Origins of the "Penn Family Chairs"
Jay Robert Stiefel
Monograph on elaborately carved Philadelphia mahogany chairs traditionally associated with the Penn Family. Discusses their provenance, including ownership by the Welcome Society, the Chipstone Foundation, Stratford Hall (the Lee Family residence), and prominent early collectors of American 18th century high style furniture such as George S. Palmer, Samuel A. Crozer, Jr., and Caroline Clendenin Ryan Foulke. Describes a missing chair of the set, previously on exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA 19-1929-2), which the Welcome Society seeks to recover. Also explores the origins of rococo and classical designs in Philadelphia, and compares these chairs to related examples in public and private collections. Color and black & white illus.
