Enjoy a private group tour of Marjorie Merriweather Post’s former estate, which has one of the most comprehensive collections of 18th and 19th century Russian Imperial art outside of Russia, as well as an extensive collection of 18th century French decorative arts. Highlights include a diamond crown worn by Empress Alexandra at her marriage to Nicholas II, Imperial Easter eggs by Carl Faberge and a collection of costumes worn by Mrs. Post. Enjoy time on your own in the lush gardens and view the new exhibit: Cartier: Marjorie Merriweather Post’s Dazzling Gems.
“One of Cartier’s most important and enduring clients, Marjorie Merriweather Post commissioned some of the most exquisite jewelry sets, fashionable accessories, and finely-crafted jeweled frames of any American collector. … jewelry and objects from Hillwood’s Cartier collection will offer a notable perspective on the important role that Cartier played in the life and style of this American icon. … Pierre Cartier, the brother with whom she dealt most directly, shared an interest in Russian imperial art and even sold Post her first piece of Faberge. Post and Cartier collaborated in designing jewelry and accessories for many years, developing and refining her personal style while creating exquisite works of art.”

You are invited to have your picture made wearing a virtual version of one of Marjorie Post’s dazzling gems at the Cartier Picture Booth.

National Gallery of Art: View the Wyeth and Degas/Cassatt Special Exhibit
(Repeat trip for those wait listed on 7/16 trip and others, space permitting)

Wednesday, October 1, depart JCCNV 10:30am; return 3:45pm
Contact:, (703) 537-3095                                                 

Andrew Wyeth: Looking Out, Looking In “gathers together — for the first time — a select group of Wyeth’s images of windows. Included in the exhibition are watercolor studies quickly executed to capture a momentary impression as well as tempera paintings. The exhibition begins with Wind from the Sea and proceeds to galleries of images that reflect his extended study of windows at other sites of particular interest, including the Olson house in Maine, the Kuerner farm in Pennsylvania, and his own Brandywine studio.” The exhibition, organized by the National Gallery of Art, will be seen only in Washington.

The Degas/Cassatt exhibit focuses  “on the critical period from the late 1870s through the mid-1880s when Degas and Cassatt were most closely allied. This exhibition brings together some 70 works in a variety of media to examine the fascinating artistic dialogue that developed between the two artists. Groundbreaking technical analysis provides new insight into the intersections between their art, in terms of subject matter as well as choice of media and methods.”                     
There are cafés in which to sit, relax and eat.

Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in historic Georgetown is administered by the Trustees for Harvard University. It supports research and learning in Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies. Dumbarton Oaks welcomes researchers to the library and the public to visit its historic Gardens, its Museum — with world-class collections of art; and its Music Room. “The museum strives to advance knowledge and stimulate appreciation of art by engaging visitors aesthetically, visually, and intellectually. We connect scholars with art, and art scholarship with the public.”

The galleries feature specialized collections of Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art, European masterpieces on view in the historic Music Room, and special exhibitions. Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss initiated these collections in the first half of the twentieth century and provided the vision for future acquisitions after giving Dumbarton Oaks to Harvard University.
