In celebration of Founder’s Day, The Marymount School of New York hosted an evening lecture and reception on February 2, 2010 titled “Marie-Antoinette in America: Her Royal Treasures in the New World”.  Scholar/Author/Speaker Ronald Freyberger, an authority on 18th-century French decorative arts, held the large audience of parents, alumnae, faculty, and invited guests spellbound with a demonstration of the beauty, complexity, and intricate histories of some of the finest examples of the decorative arts ever made.  Ranging from mother-of-pearl writing desks to silver candelabra to finely carved armchairs and daybeds, Mr. Freyberger explored the importance and power of the decorative arts and the significance of both museums and private collectors in the histories of these precious objects.
