Remains Lighting Special Exhibition and Talk: ART LIGHTING IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY: E. F. CALDWELL & COMPANY
Remains Lighting will host a lecture by Margaret Caldwell in conjunction with an exhibition of lighting by the early 20th century master designer and manufacturer E. F. Caldwell & Company, its patrons and milieu as well as its significant competitors; firms such as The Sterling Bronze Company, Best and Lloyd, and Cassidy and Sons. The exhibition will be curated by David Calligeros and Margaret Caldwell.
The E. F. Caldwell Company led the field of lighting design at the dawn of the 20th Century by engaging the new technology of electric light in combination with exceptional artisanship and fidelity to traditional styles of the western canon. The E. F. Caldwell Company successfully won commissions for the White House, The Boston Public Library, Henry Clay Frick, the Andrew Carnegie Mansion (now the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum of the Smithsonian Institution), and other illustrious patrons. Later commissions include the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the Radio City Music Hall at Rockefeller Center.
Margaret Caldwell is the great granddaughter of E. F. Caldwell and an independent scholar and dealer in 19th and early 20th century furniture and decorative arts. Ms Caldwell has lectured and consulted extensively on the subject of her great grandfather’s firm.
Remains Lighting is a premier collector and dealer in lighting devices of the early 20th century, as well as a maker of lighting in the tradition of the E. F. Caldwell Company. Remains Lighting founder David Calligeros’ keen interest in fine metalwork and restoration of antique lighting has given him a unique perspective on these masterworks in metal and glass.
