3 MAGAZINES HIGHLIGHT THE HYDE
The Hyde Collection, art museum complex and historic house located in Glens Falls, New York has been revealed to the world through three internationally distribution magazines. The Catalogue of Antiques & Fine Art, The Magazine Antiques, and Art&Antiques have all highlighted The Hyde Collection in recent issues.
The Catalogue of Antiques and Fine Art, a bi-monthly magazine is devoted to educating museum professionals, collectors, and independent scholars about art and antiques. It provides a forum where these same voices can share their knowledge and expertise by contributing articles that offer fresh, informative perspectives to the field of fine and decorative arts. The Museum’s director Randall Suffolk authored an article for the Autumn, 2004 Museum Focus section of the publication, which highlights the Hyde’s history, collections, and the recent expansion and restoration projects. Curator Erin Coe contributed an article to be featured in the Curator’s Choice segment of the same issue, that focuses on the important pieces of art and furnishings displayed in the Library of the recently restored historic Hyde House. The Autumn issue of the Catalogue of Antiques and Fine Art is available for purchase in The Hyde Collection’s Museum Store, 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls.
The Magazine Antiques has featured the Furnishing Plan and restoration of historic Hyde House in its December, 2004 issue. The full page article, written by Allison Eckardt Ledes, editor, specifically details the efforts and contributions of the conservators, specialists, and fabric suppliers who were involved in the project. Beautiful color photographs accompany the article, highlighting some of the textiles and trims that were produced to replicate the original curtains and upholstery fabrics. This international magazine is highly respected by collectors, dealers, museum professionals, and others who have an interest in gaining insight and knowledge about fine art and antiques. The recent restoration of Hyde House has deeply broadened the interest in the historic house. Once regarded for its impressive art collection alone, it is now garnering new interest in its historic interiors as well.
The March, 2005 issue of Art&Antiques magazine highlights the restoration, conservation and reopening of Hyde House (May, 2004), and the Rembrandt loans between the National Gallery of Art and The Hyde. Accompanying the article is a beautiful color image of Saskia van Uylenburgh, the Wife of the Artist by Rembrandt; currently on display in Hyde House library. The article refers to The Hyde Collection as "a gem of a house museum" – what an honor! Art&Antiques is the most widely read national art and antiques magazine. The publication’s award-winning editorial is the authoritative source for elegant, sophisticated coverage of the treasures collectors love, the places to discover them, and the unique ways collectors use them to enrich their environments. The magazine is published by Trans World Publishing, Inc., a member of the Billian Family Companies.
