Marvin Ross: Monuments Man

April 1, 2017

The exquisite collection of furniture and fine art acquired for the Hammond-Harwood House has benefited from the expertise of trained museum professionals. Marvin Ross (1904-1977), an early trustee, is a prime example.  Ross, who was an expert on the Byzantine era, led an extraordinary life as Curator of Medieval and Subsequent Arts at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore and later as the first curator of Hillwood, heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post’s private estate in northwest Washington, D.C.  During World War II, Ross was a member of the 'Monuments Men'- the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Section of the Allied Forces.  This group of curators, architects, and historians identified and recovered art stolen by Nazi forces. This special exhibition explores the life of Marvin Ross, who was a member of the Hammond-Harwood House furnishings committee in the 1950's and 1960's, and presents the collection that he directly helped to acquire for the Hammond-Harwood House. From a report of the furnishings committee, June 1951: “No one has been more astute in their efforts to keep us before the public than Mr. Marvin C. Ross.  He has, as we all know, a most unusual flare for finding beautiful treasures for our old house.” Exhibition runs April 1 to December 31, 2017.  Free and open to the public during normal tour hours, Tuesday through Sunday noon to 5pm. Members only reception March 30.
