Georgia Bellflowers: The Furniture of Henry Eugene Thomas

This exhibition catalogue chronicles the life and work of Henry Eugene Thomas, a prominent figure in the first generation of collectors from Georgia who operated during the first recovery of furniture from Piedmont Georgia. Not only did Thomas discover many of the masterpieces that are now icons of early Georgia furniture, he also restored many of them. Thomas also was a significant craftsman in his own right, who created a recognizable Colonial Revival style from the 1920s through the 1950s and provided furnishings for many prominent homes in Athens. This small attractive catalogue includes more than 40 illustrations, a previously unpublished manuscript by Thomas's son Jack and a checklist of the exhibition.
