The Art of Seating features more than simple pieces of furniture. These works of art have compelling stories to tell about American history, the evolution of American design, and incredible artistry and craftsmanship. It is a fantastic and comprehensive collection of iconic and historic chairs reaching from the mid-1800s to pieces from today’s studio movement. The objects are from the Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Ph.D. Foundation, and offer a stylistic journey in furniture with showstoppers by John Henry Belter, George Hunzinger, the Herter Brothers, the Stickley Brothers, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Isamu Noguchi, Frank Gehry, and others.  There will be a free Illustrated Lecture at the Four Arts on December 8, 2018 at 11 a.m. with collector Diane DeMell Jacobsen, whose eponymous foundations provided many of the objects for The Art of Seating.
