     "Unexpected Treasures from Marblehead" 

    A special guest lecture presented by Judy Anderson of Marblehead Architecture Heritage, author of Glorious Splendor - 18th Century Wallpapers in the Jeremiah Lee Mansion.


    Prior to Independence, Marblehead was the second-largest town in Massachusetts. Half the houses from those years still stand, and their compelling family stories encompass splendor, intrigue, and tragedy. Fine and decorative arts were produced for a wealthy clientele of merchants. This talk will showcase portraits by John Singleton Copley (1764 - 1769) and Joseph Badger ( c. 1707 - 1765), and 18th-century furniture by five known cabinet-makers (1720s to 80s). Later eras will embrace engaging 1920s folk art and Marblehead’s celebrated art pottery. A book signing will follow.
