The Mitchell Gallery presents “House Proud: Nineteenth-Century Watercolor Interiors from the Thaw Collection,” an exhibition that examines the evolution of the domestic interior in 19th-century Europe. This exhibition was organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, and explores the origins of the modern home through Eugene (St. John’s College, Class of 1947) and Clare Thaw’s generous gift to the museum of these 47 interior watercolors.
“House Proud: Nineteenth-Century Watercolor Interiors from the Thaw Collection” showcases the Thaw’s collection of 19th-century watercolor drawings, which meticulously detail the era’s interior furnishings and document the social, cultural, and aesthetic development of European domestic life. The collection includes examples of English, German, Russian, French, Italian, and Austrian domestic spaces.
