efb_peter_kenny_0020 Peter Kenny, a longtime Curator and Administrator of The American Wing of The Metropolitan Museum, will be joining Classical American Homes Preservation Trust as Co-President with Margize Howell, the foundation's current Executive Director.
Peter Kenny is considered one of the nation's foremost authorities on American furniture and is the current Ruth Bigelow Wriston Curator of American Decorative Arts and Administrator of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum. He is a 30-year veteran of The Met and has worked closely with Morrison Heckscher, Chairman (Emeritus) of the American Wing on the recently completed renovation of its unsurpassed collection of period rooms and galleries for the fine and decorative arts. Peter Kenny is also a noted lecturer and the author of various award-winning books on American furniture, including, most recently, Duncan Phyfe: Master Cabinetmaker in New York and Honoré Lannuier, Cabinet Maker from Paris: The Life and Work of a French Ébéniste in Federal New York.

Previously, she was Senior Curator for 16 years at Donaldson, Lufkin, & Jenrette, a major Wall Street investment banking firm whose New York offices included a large collection of early 19th century Americana, which included portraits, antique furnishings, and documents related to our nation's financial history. DLJ was sold to Credit Suisse in 2000, at which point Margize Howell joined Classical American Homes. She is a native of Atlanta, Georgia and a History of Art graduate with distinction from the University of Virginia, and the Sotheby's Works of Art Programme in London. Currently she serves on the Board of Directors of the Decorative Arts Trust and the Advisory Councils of the Historic House Trust of New York City and the Charleston Heritage Symposium.
