Attention to Detail: Architectural Arts and Design from the Collection

Exhibition Website

Dec 17 2017 - Apr 15 2018

Throughout history, talented artisans have spent untold hours (and their patron's untold riches) on embellishing architectural interiors around the world. The MOAS collection has many fine examples of architectural designs and furnishings created by the army of craftsmen employed by the wealthy in Europe to decorate their mansions and palaces. This exhibition brings to light beautiful hand-drawn sketches and watercolors together with prints and design additions such as mirrors and fire mantelpieces from the collection that were all a part of the design aesthetic from the Renaissance on in Europe.
