One of the largest and most refined collections of early American furniture in private hands--acquired over the course of five decades by George M. and Linda H. Kaufman--was promised to the Gallery in October 2010. This installation highlights nearly 100 examples of furniture and decorative arts from this distinguished collection, including porcelains and floral watercolors by Pierre Joseph Redouté. In addition, the installation includes paintings by celebrated American artists such as Gilbert Stuart. The Kaufman gift dramatically complements the Gallery's fine holdings of European decorative arts with equally important American works of art.
