The Dorothy Collins Brown Wing of the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is devoted to the work of early 20th-century Pasadena architects Charles Sumner and Henry Mather Greene. Synonymous with the Arts & Crafts Movement in Southern California, their insistence upon fine craftsmanship, houses and furniture harmonized as single artistic expressions, and the use of the highest-quality materials set new levels of excellence. This approach belonged to a larger cultural movement that began in England in response to the Industrial Revolution.
This permanent exhibition, organized in collaboration with the the Huntington, has three parts. The main hall features the full spectrum and evolution of the Greenes’ artistic genius, with examples of their designs for furniture and decorative arts. The second part is the reassembled stairway from the 1905 Arthur A. Libby house, and the third part of the exhibition is a recreation of the dining room of the Henry M. Robinson House, designed and built in Pasadena between 1905 and 1907.
