Description Tall cabinet of solid and painted wood, with six drawers and two doors, by renowned architect and landscape designer Dan Kiley. Basically, a freestanding built-in from the Charles and Margret Withers house (1951) in W. Newbury, MA. Kiley studied landscape architecture at Harvard in the late 1930s, along with classmate Garrett Eckbo, and went on to receive important postwar landscaping commissions, notably the Miller house in Columbus, Indiana, along with Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. The present piece, from a modernist house Kiley designed in 1951, reflects the influences of Gropius and Albers. According to Josephine Withers, a child at the time, the cabinet was always brightly painted. One side of the cabinet is raw wood; the other side is painted white, as found. Provenance available.
