Oak Spring Garden Foundation’s Paul and Bunny Mellon’s Visual Biographies

On February 23rd, Helen and Antonio arrived in Verona, Italy just as 12 towns nearby were placed on lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. They were there to do a press inspection for this book about Paul and Bunny Mellon’s close connection to trompe l’oeil paintings–especially those at their home in Upperville, Virginia. Our travelers returned safely and now the first sample bound books have arrived. We’re grateful for the support given by Oak Spring Garden Foundation for this project, and hope you like the book.
