The home of Frank and Demi Rogozienski contains some of the finest examples of canvases from the Barbizon School of artists - named for the Barbizon village in the Fontainebleau Forest in France - ever held in a private collection. The movement spanned a brief four decades, from 1830-70, during the Romantic period of the 19th century. During its heyday, the artists interpreted nature in all her glory, depicting realistic pastoral scenes and idyllic landscapes, a backlash to the neoclassical traditions of the French Academy. The Rogozienskis' collection includes original oils on canvas, iconography, drawings, sculture, pottery, and furniture and accessories. Pieces span centuries - from ancient Egyptian and greek artifacts, to 17th-century canvases, to paintings of the late 1800s. The private collection tour will be co-led by Dr. Julia Marciari-Alexander and Dr. John Marciari.
