Eustis Estate

Windsor Chair

New England; 1805-20; Wood, paint; Gift of Constance McCann Belts, Helena Woolworth Guest, and Frasier W. McCann, 1942.2028.1.

Similarly to the “grained” chair  — and in a gesture that would have appalled most antiquarians Sleeper painted this nineteenth-century Windsor chair to match a suite of variously aged chairs in his Golden Step Room, all painted sea-foam green.
