Gilded New York explores the city’s visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels.
The Museum is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
