Going to veer slightly off the course for this week’s spotlight. Given their status as famed members of the Antiques Roadshow and their own Found!, Leigh and Leslie Keno need little introduction. While successful in the antiques trade, they have both made significant additions to our understanding of American decorative arts through scholarly inquiry.
I’ve chosen a video produced for an exhibition on Connecticut River Valley Furniture for two reasons. First, I’m a fan of the regions style. Secondly, it is indicative of the Keno brothers skill as public historians.
