In 1884, John La Farge created this panel as a tenth wedding anniversary present for his close friends Richard Watson Gilder, a poet, and Helena de Kay, a painter. It originally functioned as a window in an inglenook in the Gilders' home at 103 East 15th Street (see photo 3). Around 1890, Stanford White, a member of the Gilders' artistic circle, remodeled the house, removed the panel (which was about 3 x 2 ft. btw) from its architectural setting, and refitted it as a freestanding fire screen. The use of opalescent glass and delicate glass jewels is characteristic of the early work of La Farge. . 👉🏻 On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774. . 📷 Met Museum open collection; Photo of Helena de Kay in her studio (undated); Library of Congress. . #johnlafarge #stanfordwhite #opalescentglass #opalescence #firescreen #anniversarygift #glasspanel #stainedglasspanel #stainedglasswindow #anniversarypresent #lafarge #uniquegifts #repurpose #beautifuldesign #instabeautiful #creativedesign #coolstuff
_ Swimming pool, Astor Courts by American architect Stanford White, 1902  Since its construction in 1902 the building has served for periods as a nursing home and a convent, as well as a weekend retreat
spruce street gothic with some morbid architect drama thrown in 😬 . 1710 was the home of harry k. thaw, the pittsburgh canal and railroad scion who....dun dun dun....murdered the renowned architect #stanfordwhite (of #mckimmeadandwhite) on the roof of the old madison square garden in 1906. . thaw was married to evelyn nesbit, a chorus girl white had tangled with several years earlier. and by tangled, i mean allegedly (and let’s be honest: probably) raped. she and white remained friends with benefits (or maybe something a little more psychologically manipulative than that) for a while longer. . thaw wasn’t of sound mind to begin with and harbored a (toxic masculine) grudge against white, even though white’s relationship with nesbit was over. he shot him at point-blank range, setting off a criminal trial of O.J.-level magnetism. . BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: that iteration of madison square garden (second of four!) was designed by none other than....stanford white. in fact, white had an apartment there but had originally planned to be away on business in—wait for it—philly. and ironically enough, after that building was demolished in 1925, the iconic augustus saint-gaudens statue of diana that crowned its tower became a philly icon. it was shipped down in 1932 to the @philamuseum’s still-newish building on the parkway, where it continues to preside over the great hall as @dianaonthestairs ✨ . . . . . . #architects #gothicrevival #gothichouse #phillyfacades #rittenhouse #bnw_architecture #phillyscape #victorianarchitecture #murder #bnw_streetphotography #moodygrams #postitfortheaesthetic #raw_dnw #doorsandwindows #philadelphiaarchitecture #philadelphia #phillygram #howphillyseesphilly #historicphilly #phillyarchitecture #phillyatnight #oldhouselove #historicarchitecture #archi_ologie #archilovers #streetscape #thisplacematters

I've been eyeing this building for years.

It’s no secret: I love New York City during the holidays. And nothing does a better job of putting me in a festive mood than the gorgeous decorations at the Metropolitan Club, where @classicist_org celebrated the 7th Annual Stanford White Awards this last week. In addition to recognizing the stunning work, it was simply a pleasure to experience the Stanford White-designed masterpiece. The holiday spirit is continued on this stoop that I passed in the West Village over the weekend!  #newyork #holidays #christmas #metropolitanclub #stanfordwhite #westvillage #christmastree
This is Stanford White's New York City house located at 121 East 21st Street. Such chic and gorgeous interiors don’t you think?! Even though he was a complete scumbag, there’s no denying his immense talent. White and his family lived in this home until his murder in 1906. His wife then had to put everything in the home up for auction in order to pay off the massive debts he’d incurred behind her back. On March 24, 1907, The NY Times published a full-page article describing the contents of the upcoming auction. “With the exception of certain mantelpieces, every object of art in the house is to go.” I’ve been trying to find out where all of these items went but haven’t been able to verify it yet. As for the home, it was demolished in 1925 to make way for The Gramercy Park Hotel. Life goes on. 📸 Byron Company 1884 (MCNY). #bnw_greatshots #stanfordwhite #gramercypark #designinterior #interiorstyled #ig_artistry #architecturaldetail #mckimmeadwhite #newyorkcitylife #newyorkgram #instanewyork #designlife #architecture_view #blacknwhitephotography #bnw_photography #interiordesignlovers #instastyles #stylechic

This past week was a very busy one for Pledger Architect. We were in NYC working with the incredibly talented photographer @macchiaphoto to shoot two of our apartment renovation projects on the Upper East and Upper West sides of Manhattan.  This was accomplished because of the great generosity of our clients, both of who opened their homes to us during the holiday season (and with children that still needed to keep their daily routines). Additionally, because of the assistance we received in so many different ways from professional colleagues, designers, craftsmen, friends, former neighbors, and former classmates from Notre Dame. You all know who you are, and we thank you!  In between these five 12-18 hour days, we also attended the ICAA’s annual Stanford White Awards at the Metropolitan Club, visited the Delacroix exhibit at the MET, saw the tree in Rockefeller Plaza.  Thanks again to our clients, and to Adam Macchia for doing such an amazing job.  @macchiaphoto @classicist_org #stanfordwhite #stanfordwhiteawards #adammacchia #metropolitanclub #uppereastside #upperwestside #nycflowermarket #photoshoot #makeitwork #icaanyc #delacroix @remainslighting @alexahamptoninc @metmuseum @rjbump @pledgerarchitect

Florence Evelyn Nesbit (December 25, 1884 – January 17, 1967), known professionally as Evelyn Nesbit, was an #american chorus girl, artists #model, and #actress. In the early part of the #20th #century, Nesbit's figure and face appeared frequently in mass circulation newspapers and #magazine advertisements, on souvenir items, and #calendars, making her a cultural #celebrity. Her career began in her early teens in #philadelphia and continued in New York, where she posed for a cadre of respected artists of the era, including #jamescarroll Beckwith, Frederick S. Church, and notably #charlesdanagibson, who idealized her as a "Gibson Girl". She had the distinction of being an early #fashion and artists' model in an era when both fashion #photography (as an advertising medium) and the #pinup (as an art genre) were just beginning their ascendancy. #evelynnesbit achieved worldwide notoriety when her husband, the multimillionaire #harrykendall Thaw, shot and killed #stanfordwhite on the rooftop theatre of #madisonsquaregarden on the evening of June 25, 1906, leading to what the press would call the "Trial of the Century". During the trial, Nesbit testified that as a stage performer, and while still a 14-year-old, she attracted the attention of the then 47-year-old architect and New York socialite Stanford White, who first gained her family's trust then sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious. #blackandwhitephoto circa #1903 #colorized by @mydigitalartwork #colorizedphoto

The oldest acting school in the English-speaking world,[1] the Academy in New York City was founded in 1884 to train actors for the stage. Its first home was the original Lyceum Theatre on what is now Park Avenue South.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TODAY in Black Film History RAGTIME released November 20, 1981 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ragtime is a highly acclaimed, award-winning novel from 1975 by E. L. Doctorow, that uses a mosaic of narrative threads to broadly reconstruct the years in New York during America’s Gilded Age at the turn of the twentieth century. By portraying the city’s culture, its society, and many of its most influential citizens, the book describes—as the title suggests—the era when ragtime was the predominant form of American popular music. The novel’s adaptation to film, by director Milos Forman in 1981, concentrates on one of those threads: that of Coalhouse Walker (Howard Rollins Jr. in his feature film debut), a successful black piano player whose fanatical pursuit of justice in the face of overt racism and humiliation, turns to revenge as he takes the law into his own hands with tragic results. Though Forman overlooks much of the novel’s complex storytelling flavor, he remains true to the times by featuring vignettes of historical characters, such as Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Houdini, Evelyn Nesbit, Booker T. Washington, Henry Ford, and J. P. Morgan— even including the sensationalized murder of celebrity architect Stanford White. The large, noteworthy cast stars Howard Rollins Jr., James Cagney (in his final film role), Debbie Allen, Elizabeth McGovern, Mary Steenburgen, Mandy Patinkin, Norman Mailer, Brad Dourif, Moses Gunn, Pat O’Brien, Donald O’Connor, Jeff Daniels, Fran Drescher, and Samuel L. Jackson.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackhollywood#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blm#blacklivesmatter#vintageblack#blackfilms#blackfilm#blackcinema#blackmokvies#blackfilmhistory#onthisday#theydontmakethemliketheyusedto#ragtime#eldoctorow#milosforman#howardrollins

I want a simple house, he said. He being Joseph Pulitzer (Pulitzer Mansion - Stanford White, 1903). Was this the basic model?? We had a good laugh(s) on the Gilded Age Mansions tour of the Upper East today, led by Tom Miller! He’s behind the blog, daytoninmanhattan that I’ve referenced several times. I search an address and Google usually returns with his write-up! Architect James E. Casale was hired to convert the interior into 17 apartments in 1937, and remain as such (I think co-ops). Glad to have revisited the putti over all those arches.

Preliminary Sketches of Pennsylvania Station, found from the collections at the New York Historical Society. These loose drawings were most likely drawn by Charles Follen McKim, who was working closely with Alexander Cassat, president of the Pennsylvania Railroad, for a grand and civic station in Manhattan. Professor Mosette Broderick, author of “Triumvirate: McKim, Mead and White“, points out that the loose sketches might also belong to Stanford White, who often drew in such style. . . #sketch #sketching #mcny #pennstation #pennsylvaniastation #mckimmeadandwhite #stanfordwhite #charlesfollenmckim #williamrutherfordmead #williamsymmesrichardson #doricorder #classicalarchitecture #rebuildpennstation #experiencepennstation #traditionalarchitecture #classicaldesign #landmarks #nychistory

Maxfield Parrish mastered the art of the glow. He pursued a labor-intensive technique that imbued a signature luminosity to every image he created. He painted this illustration in 1903 for an Edith Wharton story. Stanford White designed the frame. @christiesinc hopes to sell the work for $1.5 million.

“Transverse Section C—D” Showing Station and Hotel Tower” Design Drawing Ink on Linen 1902 From the Architectural Prints Collections at @nyhistory . . . This drawing displays another of the earlier designs for a Pennsylvania Station featuring a hotel tower sitting on top of the General Waiting Room. This version maximizes the volume of the space by using all air rights available, following the example of buildings like the Equitable Building in Lower Manhattan. This design is previous to the passing of the 1916 Zoning Resolution, which mandated that buildings had to follow a ziggurat shape to allow natural light onto the streets and Avenues. . . . #pennstation #pennsylvaniastation #mckimmeadandwhite #stanfordwhite #charlesfollenmckim #williamrutherfordmead #williamsymmesrichardson #corynthiancolumns #classicalarchitecture #rebuildpennstation #experiencepennstation #traditionalarchitecture #skylight #ionicorder #landmarks #nychistory
“Elevation Cut Showing Station and Hotel Tower” Design Drawing Ink on Linen 1902 From the Architectural Prints Collections at @nyhistory . . . This drawing displays one of the earlier designs for a Pennsylvania Station featuring a hotel tower sitting on top of the General Waiting Room. Alexander Cassat, then President of the Pennsylvania Railroad, sought ways to make the station a source of revenue. Charles McKim, the official architect of Pennsylvania Station, was famously afraid of heights, and his disdain towards vertical development could have influenced the decision to move the design without a tower and emphasize on the horizontality of the station. . . . #pennstation #pennsylvaniastation #mckimmeadandwhite #stanfordwhite #charlesfollenmckim #williamrutherfordmead #williamsymmesrichardson #corynthiancolumns #classicalarchitecture #rebuildpennstation #experiencepennstation #traditionalarchitecture #classicaldesign #skylight #ionicorder #landmarks #nychistory

The Clock of Herald Square This park was once the home of the New York Herald Building. All that remains of this mini-masterpiece from Stanford White is this sculpture of Minerva and her two bell ringers which stood above the main entrance. Based on the Loggia del Consiglio in Verona, White’s masterful design enclosed the newspapers printing plant in a two-story arcaded structure embellished with panels of yellow and buff terra cotta. Large windows overlooking the press rooms invited passerby to watch the latest edition being printed. At night, the electrified eyes of twenty six owls, lined up along the cornice, winked in the darkness. Like Madison Square Garden, The Herald Building demonstrates White’s skill with both ornament and organization. Sadly, as the city continued its march further uptown ( next stop being Times Square) the building was abandoned by its publisher and eventually demolished. Built in 1893, gone by 1921. #stanfordwhite #newyorkherald #heraldsquare #nycarchitecture #nychistory #mckimmeadandwhite #minerva #bellringers #verona #classicarchitecture #nycphotographer #streetsofnyc #clocksofnyc #publicclocks #owls

Architect of the "American Renaissance," Stanford White was born #onthisday in 1906. Among the many private residences, public, institutional, and religious buildings designed by White is the Washington Square arch.  Washington Square arch in Spring. Oil on canvas by Childe Hassam, 1890. #washingtonsquarearch #washingtonsquarepark #painting #childehassam #nyc #stanfordwhite #architecture #art
#onthisdate in 1853, #stanfordwhite was born. The #architect was trained by Henry Hobson Richardson. He and his partners ran McKim, Mead, and White, one of the country's most popular and prolific firms. He designed gracefully proportioned #structures set off by Italian #renaissance ornamentation, including #madisonsquaregarden (1891), the #washingtonmemorial Arch (1891), the #newyorkherald Building (1892), and Madison Square Presbyterian Church (1906). He also created #jewelry, #furniture, and a wide range of #interiordecorations. He was shot to death by the jealous husband of a showgirl with whom he had an affair. White's works can be seen in #hydehouse. In the Dining Room, his tabernacle-style frame surrounds #abbottandersonthayer's Mary: #portrait of the Artist's Daughter, and he designed the #fountain in the #courtyard. #artmuseum #fineart #upstateny #glensfalls #historichome #thingstodo #adirondacks #capitalregion #lakegeorge #saratoga #europeanart #americanart #modernart #decorativearts

I’m off to Madison Square Garden for the Rangers game! The current building is the 4th incarnation of ‘the Garden’ but my favorite is the 2nd, seen here in 1900. Not only was it designed by Stanford White, but it’s where he was murdered in 1906. It was torn down in 1925 to make way for the New York Life Building.  #madisonsquaregarden #newyork #thegarden #architecture #nyc #archives #ilovenewyork #stanfordwhite #crimeofthecentury #blackandwhite #newyorkarchitecture #newyorkhistory #architectures #madisonsquarepark #madisonsquare #ig_nycity
