About the Model

This armchair was made in 1810 by cabinetmaker and merchant John Hewitt. The form is a neoclassical style, based off an ancient Greek chair with curved legs and a curved back. With its clean lines and orderly forms, Neoclassicism became a prevalent style in European and American architecture and furniture. Hewitt's granddaughters went on to establish the Cooper Union Museum, forming the foundation of Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Museum.
