Gallery Talk: Thistles and Crowns: Decoding the Decoration on the Painted Chests

June 8, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The painters who decorated the vibrant 18th-century chests from Saybrook and Guilford struck a careful balance between beauty and meaning. Embedding contentious political symbols in their designs, they created striking surfaces on useful objects during a time of rapid change.
