Greene & Greene at the Huntington Library

Ted Wells of Living : Simple passes on this tidbit:

Starting February 23, four Greene & Greene pieces from the Dr. William T. Bolton house will be on display at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California: The entry hall table, the two entry side chairs (the exquisite, tall, Mackintosh-like designs), and the Barlow Bush curio cabinet. This is the first time these four pieces have been together since they left the Bolton house. It is incredible to see how the pieces visually interact when displayed as they were meant to be seen by the Greene's. This display will be at the Huntington Library until June 30, 2006.

The Thorsen library table (not the dining table) is the piece that is joining the Victoria & Albert Museum's International Arts & Crafts exhibit opening at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. If you did not travel to London to see this exhibit, and you will be near the Bay Area anytime before June 30, it is worth seeing this show. In addition to the Thorsen pieces, there are other G&G objects on display including the Blacker House breakfast room hanging light and a Blacker arm chair, along with hundreds of Arts & Crafts objects from around the world.

Also: it's a long way off, but the Huntington will also present The Architecture and Decorative Arts of Charles and Henry Greene from October 2008 to January 2009.
