Walking through the rooms of Winterthur, visitors gaze upon the finest furniture from early America. The quality of the collection is so high, the quantity so great, that it is easy to overlook the unmatched grandeur of individual pieces. Join Brock Jobe, Professor Emeritus at Winterthur, as he focuses on five New England landmarks from this splendid collection, explores their groundbreaking significance, and traces the diverse paths that brought them to Winterthur. Along the way, we will witness the discipline, persistence, and artistic eye that guided Henry Francis du Pont in his pursuit of excellence.
