The Story of the Beautiful

Using the Peacock Room as the focal point, The Story of the Beautiful explores the history of art and aesthetics and provides a contextualized exhibition of the objects which have formed part of the room’s collections. The exhibit includes interactive reconstructions of the room both in its original installation in London and its later installation in Detroit.

Project developed by the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and Wayne State University’s Library System.
