The largest artwork at the Hudson River Museum is our historic home Glenview. Its original interior woodwork is also one of the major projects created by renowned cabinetmaker Daniel Pabst. Glenview’s restored period rooms feature a grand staircase with a carved walnut sunflower banister and a sideboard featuring scenes from Aesop’s Fables, delicate floral details, and elegant brass hinges.

Find out more about Daniel Pabst and his workshop in a virtual tour from home with Laura Vookles, Chair of the Museum’s Curatorial Department. How did this German-born Philadelphian come to work in Yonkers? How does his art reflect the height of decorative design during a period often called the Aesthetic Movement, when integrated design approaches anticipated twentieth-century interiors?

This live Zoom event will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
