Charles and Henry Greene are known for elaborately-crafted designs that bear little in common with the presumed “simplicity” aspired to by many of the movement’s adherents, among them Gustav Stickley. On Wednesday evening, Nov. 19, at 6:30 p.m., Edward Bosley, the James M. Gamble Director of the Gamble House, will give a lecture in the Robert R. Wark Lecture Series at the Huntington Library in San Marino, in which he will explore the apparent conundrum, examining the movement’s philosophies in the context of the Greenes’ American contemporaries. Pre-lecture reception at 5:30 p.m. Free. No reservations required. Friends’ Hall.
