Henry E. Huntington
Shelley M. Bennett, former curator of European art and senior research associate at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, speaks about her new book, The Art of Wealth: The Huntingtons in the Gilded Age, which will be published in May 2013 by the Huntington Library Press.

The permanent collection housed at the Huntington in San Marino, California, is the culmination of decades of art collecting by four Huntingtons around the turn of the century, an era often referred to as the Gilded Age. Bennett's book focuses on these extraordinary individuals.

Signed copies will be available for purchase at the bookstore following the lecture.
