I was incredibly excited when my fellow Normadie lover Anna McDonald sent me this great article about a private collector in Texas who not only has two homes full of beautiful art and history but has ten of the Normandie panels on display in one of his prestigious homes.
Below is the picture of the 10 Normandie panels in the collector’s gorgeous ballroom. They look like they belong there next to that amazing 1930s piano and checkered dance floor.
The article which you can read here talks about how his collection spans across many centuries and genres and you can definitely see from the lovely pictures included that this is the case.
I imagine that a stroll through either of his homes would be mind blowing. The spaces look welcoming, almost like they want you to ask about the pieces they are filled with. Imagine the conversations you could have about where each piece was acquired and how.
One cool thing that Elizabeth Pochoda mentions in her article, is the new meaning each room in these houses takes on. Although each room is filled with art and antiques with different histories, they somehow complement each other. A new back-story created just through placing them in the same space.
If you are interested in art in general or in the Normadie panels, it is definitely worth the read! Thanks again Anna for sharing with this Normandie enthusiast!
