About Wharton Esherick's Work
Much of Wharton Esherick’s work is in museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Renwick Collection at the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress. Furniture and a well-worn staircase are integral parts of Hedgerow Theatre, in Rose Valley, PA, a center of the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
Works by Wharton Esherick, created primarily for his patrons, seldom come to market. Philadelphia’s Moderne Gallery, renowned as the leading Studio Furniture gallery in the U.S., is offering furniture, sculptural objects, sculpture and woodcuts from the Merion, PA home of patrons Rose and Nathan Rubinson, with additional works from other private collections. Most pieces come from the original owners and have never before been exhibited or available for purchase.
Dinner afterwards, if you like, on your own with many possibilities in Old City.
