  • Chest, 1770–80
    New England
    Mahogany, white pine; 34 1/2 x 37 1/2 x 22 3/4 in. (87.6 x 95.3 x 57.8 cm)
    Partial and Promised Gift of Charlotte Pickman Gertz, 2001 (2001.644)

    The drawer fronts of this chest have a reverse-serpentine shape that is echoed in the large overhanging top, the boldly proportioned brasses, and the crisply curved brackets of the feet. In keeping with the Rococo aesthetic, the total effect is one of movement and lightness.
