Description
Henry ("Hank") Kupjack
New England Parlor Miniature Room – Boston, MA Circa 1770, 2002
Three Dimensional Construction in Mixed Media
Signed by the artist
One of a kind - Original
Height: 14 inches, Width: 28 inches, Depth: 15 inches

This exquisite miniature room by one of the art form's most renown masters was previously on display at the Naples Museum of Art in Florida for five years.

The miniature is in the scale one inch representing one foot. Every item in the miniature was created by the artist's hands. It is displayed in a decorative case also created by the artist - no additional framing is needed.

Due in part to rising prosperity, late colonial New England houses featured parlor rooms as the center of social functions. As such, the room was a open display of the finest woodwork and furniture, intended to impress any visitors as to the family's status in the community.

Henry Kupjack has created over 600 miniature rooms either by himself or in collaboration with his father, Eugene Kupjack who worked on the Thorne Rooms - one of the most popular attractions at the Art Institute of Chicago and the perpetual standard bearer of miniature room exhibits. Henry's work can be seen in museums and private collections worldwide.

Henry Kupjack is a rare breed. Few artisans anywhere do what he does, and only a handful with as much skill and style. Kupjack is a miniaturist, but the description falls well short of indicating the spectrum of his abilities. There are many professional miniaturists, but most specialize in a particular genre, such as making furniture or casting metal. Kupjack does it all; creating tiny, fascinating worlds that are complete in every detail. He possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of architectural history with a surgeon’s dexterity and a set designer’s cunning.

Includes a certificate of authenticity.

Also included to the winning bidder is a tour of Kupjack studios in Chicago, IL as well as a guided tour of the Thorne Rooms at The Art Institute of Chicago by the exhibit's current curator Lindsey McCann.
Donated by: Henry Kupjack
