The AFGG Holiday Party and Annual General Meeting
The Baker House, 67 East 93rd Street

The AFGG holiday party and annual general meeting again will be hosted at the beautiful George F. Baker House in Carnegie Hill, the highest point in Manhattan. As we celebrate the holidays and prepare to usher in 2019, we will have the opportunity to explore this immaculately preserved townhouse, designed by Delano and Aldrich for one of New York's most important bankers in the 1920s. Classical American Homes Preservation Trust is based in this building, an organization founded by Richard Jenrette, who passed away this year.

Private Tour of the Valadier Exhibition
The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th Street

A curator will provide a small group of 12 AFGG members a private tour of the new exhibition, Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome.

It is the first monographic exhibition devoted to one of the important figures of eighteenth-century Italian decorative arts, Luigi Valadier (1726–1785). He was a talented draftsman, designer, goldsmith, silversmith, and bronze founder, using precious stones as well as enamel, wood and glass, to create whimsical and elegant works of art for noble clients. The exhibit highlights Valadier’s oeuvre, presenting more than fifty objects as well as drawings that represent the breadth of his career -- many never before seen by an American museum audience.

Sign up immediately — very limited space!

$65 for AFGG members.
Ticket prices include museum admission. Arrive early or stay beyond our tour to enjoy the other treasures of The Frick.

Wednesday, January 6th, 6:00 pm
Lecture: The Birth of Modern Theatre
Co-sponsored with the Colonial Dames of America, 417 East 61st Street

Norman Poser will join us for an extraordinary talk about his new book, The Birth of Modern Theatre: Rivalry, Riots, and Romance in the Age of Garrick. It is a vivid description of the eighteenth-century London theatre scene, a time when it took on many of the features of our modern stage.

This book recounts the lives—and occasionally the scandals—of the actors and theatre managers and weaves them into the larger story of the stage in this exuberant age, setting the London stage and its leading personalities against the background of the important social, cultural, and economic changes that shaped eighteenth-century Britain.

Norman Poser is a Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn Law School. His previous books include Lord Mansfield: Justice in the Age of Reason, and Escape: A Jewish Scandinavian Family in the Second World War.
