Maher’s Early Masterwork: Pleasant Home, John Farson’s Oak Park Mansion
 
Presented by Kathleen Cummings
 
Join architectural historian and PHF Board member Ms. Cummings as she discusses Pleasant Home, the early masterwork of Chicago architect George W. Maher (1864-1926).In his design of this grand 1897 house for John Farson, Maher introduced modern ideas of landscape art, house design and interior decoration that he continued to develop throughout his career. Cummings will describe his innovations and show later examples of his work to place Pleasant Home in the context of the emerging Prairie School.
