A Journey to Bavaria & Southern Germany Virtual Lecture with Ulrich Leben
In anticipation of the Decorative Arts Trust’s October Study Trip Abroad to Bavaria, Ulrich Leben, PhD, provides a virtual introduction to the major sites we will visit in Southern Germany.
Dr. Leben takes us on a virtual journey through the stunning architecture and interiors of Munich, Augsburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Bayreuth, Würzburg, and Stuttgart. His highlights of the sites, designs, and collections are sure to interest those members preparing for the October trip as well as decorative arts enthusiasts learning about this region from home.
Ulrich Leben has published many books and articles on furniture and decorative arts in Europe, with a focus on France and Germany. Dr. Leben is the curator of the collections of historic furniture of the residence of the German Ambassador in Paris at Hôtel Beauharnais. He worked for many years as associate curator for the Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor, UK, and he has been a guest professor in the Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture department at Bard Graduate Center and in the History of Design and Curatorial Studies department at The New School’s Parsons School of Design.
We are pleased to present this lecture with support provided by the James Sanders Educational Programs Fund, which helps the Decorative Arts Trust achieve its mission to promote and foster the appreciation of the decorative arts.
