The Art of Romance

Through May 1

This exhibition includes approximately one hundred greeting cards, valentines, postcards and elaborate three-dimensional foldouts from the United States and Europe. Ranging from the early 19th century to the 1930s, these works from private collections showcases the development of the love letter from the simple hand-designed to the extravagant works of later years. This collection is a veritable survey of changing taste—offering glimpses of American and British life during the 19th and 20th century, showing how ideas of romance and courtship were expressed during a less complicated era.
