    This was the first retrospective exhibition for the eighteenth-century French still-life painter Anne Vallayer-Coster (1744-1818), a highly regarded artist who was one of the favorite painters of Marie-Antoinette. Through a selection of approximately forty of her paintings, the exhibition demonstrates Vallayer-Coster's artistic development as one of the foremost still-life artists of her generation.

  • Two Tapestries Reinstalled

    November 26, 2002 to January 26, 2003

    During the winter of 2002 to 2003, visitors enjoyed two eighteenth-century tapestries woven by the Brussels workshop of Peter van den Hecke (c. 1752). On display in the Music Room on a half-year rotational basis, these rare hangings are important for their state of preservation, the significance of their design, their royal provenance, and the evidence regarding the identity of their maker and manufacture.
