Impressions of Interiors: Gilded Age Paintings by Walter Gay
Presented by: Frick Art & Historical Center
American artist Walter Gay (1856–1937) specialized in painting views of opulent residential interiors in late-19th and early-20th-century America and Europe. John Singer Sargent, Gay's contemporary, is well known for painting the sumptuous clothing and jewels of American society in his fashionable portraits. Gay, in contrast, painted society's rooms—with their silk wall coverings, ornate paneling, 18th-century French furniture, tapestries, and sculptures—in often legendary residences.
