Pavelock, curator of Boscobel’s exhibition, THROUGH THE CHEVAL GLASS, A Study of Form and Attribution through September 10, 2012) for a private, in-depth tour of the federal furniture in the Boscobel mansion. Ms. 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.
