Take a special tour of the exhibition Living in Style: Selections from the George Way Collection of Dutch Fine and Decorative Art, led by George Way.
Featuring over 100 17th- and 18th-century Dutch items from the Netherlands — including 22 oil paintings, a rich diversity of interior furnishings, and decorative and utilitarian objects — the exhibition is installed in a period room in the historic Jean Hasbrouck House.
George Way has been a collector of fine Dutch 16th- and 17th-century furniture, paintings, and decorative arts for over fifty years. He began his collection as a teenager; today, it is recognized as one of the finest private collections of Dutch and English furniture, artifacts, and fine arts in the country. As one of America’s leading experts in 17th-century furniture, Mr. Way served as a consultant for Christie’s New York, and has made guest appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Today Show, among others. He was named one of the top 100 collectors in America by Art & Antiques for four consecutive years (1989–92).
