Art Collection and Garden Tour by Rysia de Ravel
Wednesday, May 29 at 5:00 p.m. At the home of Rysia de Ravel.
Join Lindsay Griffith, International Head of Contemporary Editions at Christie’s Auction house, as she guides you through Rysia de Ravel’s very special contemporary print collection. Two of Rysia’s Frank Stella prints were recently part of the exhibition, “Frank Stella – Unbound” at the Princeton University Art Museum. You will also be introduced to one of Princeton’s architectural and artistic gems – La Maison de la Verre, lovingly updated and expanded. This grand Frank Lloyd Wright-esque home was a collaboration between William H. Short, FLW’s Clerk of the Works for the Guggenheim Museum and William F. Shelman, Princeton Professor of Modern Architecture. The evening will begin outside in the meticulously curated garden, designed by Robert Zion (inventor of the vest-pocket park and designer of Paley Park in NYC), and then continue inside as Ms. Griffith guides you through the home and its extensive and exquisite art collection. This exciting and rare glimpse into this exclusive art collection, and the home that houses it, is not to be missed! A sit-down dinner follows the tour.
There are a limited number of seats available at $150 per person.
