Collections

Works by George Headley

The George Headley Collection features jewelry, bibelots, and mounted semi-precious stones designed and collected by George Headley himself.   Pieces range in date from the early 1930s to the late 1970s, showcasing examples from Headley's entire breadth of work.

Fine and Decorative Arts Collection

George Headley and Barbara Whitney were lifelong art collectors, buying from auctions, galleries, fellow artists, and along their trips around the world.

Whitney Estate Doll House Collection

In 1969, Marylou Whitney worked during the winters with craftsmen on the Whitney farm to build and furnish the dollhouses, room by room, as precisely as possible for her daughter, Cornelia. The result is an elaborate and beautiful example of the miniaturist's craft - a work of art in the tradition of classic dollhouses. In all, the craftsmen created four dollhouses: the main house, artist studio, guest house, and pool atrium.
