Duncan Phyfe: Master Cabinetmaker in New York



Duncan Phyfe: Master Cabinetmaker in New York
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
 
The full chronological sweep of Duncan Phyfe's (17701854) distinguished career is featured, including examples of his best-known furniture based on the English Regency designs of Thomas Sheraton, work from the middle and later stages of his career when he adopted the richer "archaeological" antique style of the 1820s, and a highly refined, plain Grecian style based on French Restauration prototypes. The exhibition brings together nearly one hundred works from private and public collections throughout the United States. Highlights of the exhibition include some never-before-seen documented masterpieces and furniture descended directly in the Phyfe family, as well as the cabinetmaker's own tool chest.
