Could the mirror in your attic have reflected images of people and places from another century?

Join Judith A. Pavelock, curator of Boscobel’s exhibition, Through the Cheval Glass, A Story of Form and Attribution, which runs through Sept. 10, for a private, in-depth tour of the federal furniture in the Boscobel mansion.

Pavelock will discuss Boscobel’s furnishings plan developed in the late 1970s by Berry B. Tracy, the then curator-in-charge of the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These limited-time, behind-the-scenes tours will conclude in Boscobel’s gallery with a discussion of the exhibition and how curators go about the process of attributing furniture to specific makers. Each tour guest will receive a free exhibition catalogue.

Curator tours at Boscobel will only be available at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9 and Saturday, Aug. 11, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12 and Monday, Aug. 13. There is no additional fee for Curator tours — regular house tour rates apply. Each tour is limited to 12 guests, so purchase your tour ticket early.
