Winterthur’s Lady of the House: Ruth Wales du Pont

Through Sunday, January 2, 2022
Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, Winterthur

schedule & tickets   venue   official site  

This jewel-box sized exhibition answers the often-asked question: Was there a Mrs. du Pont? Ruth Wales du Pont was a vivacious social figure, talented musician, and hostess of four houses. Devoted wife to Henry Francis du Pont and role model to their daughters Pauline and Ruth, Ruth presided over Winterthur during its heyday as an American country house in the early twentieth century. Numerous photographs and documents from Winterthur’s vast archive document Mrs. Du Pont’s life of hospitality, music, and travel. A meticulously crafted reproduction of her 1916 wedding gown will be showcased for the first time alongside rarely seen personal objects such as her traveling case and sheet music collection.
