About the event:

Join author Phillip James Dodd for the second installment in our series with him as he discusses four of the magnificent Beaux-Arts homes included in the book New York City An American Renaissance: The Tilden Mansion (now National Arts Club), The DeLamar Mansion (Polish Consulate), The Burden Mansion (half of Sacred Heart), The Frick, and the Kahn Mansion (the other half of Sacred Heart). 

The Gilded Age, also referred to as the American Renaissance, is an era associated with unparalleled growth, technological advancement, prosperity, and cultural change. Spanning from the 1880s to the 1930s it marks the first time that the titans of American finance and industry had more wealth than their European counterparts.

Taking a close look at four of the finest former residences in his book, New York City An American Renaissance: Beaux-Arts Architecture in New York City has been painstakingly researched and beautifully photographed over many years. While some of the buildings and monuments that are featured are world renowned landmarks recognizable and accessible to all; others are obscure buildings that history has forgotten.

Set amid the magnificent achievements of an American Renaissance, this is not just an architectural history book. It recounts not only the fascinating stories of some of New York’s most famous and significant landmarks, it also recalls the lives of those that commissioned, designed, and built them. Names that – as Julian Fellowes (the acclaimed creator of Downton Abbey) notes in the Foreword – “still reek of money”.
