The National Museum of American Illustration (NMAI) was founded in 1998 by Judy A. G. Cutler and Laurence S. Cutler, to house their art collection from the 'Golden Age of American Illustration.' The Museum venue is Vernon Court (1898), a French chateau mansion from the 'Gilded Age,' designed by Carrere & Hastings, architects of other notable buildings such as the NY Public Library, the US Senate Office Buildings, Lord Duveen's New York Galleries, and the Henry Clay Frick Collection. The three acre grounds were inspired by Henry VIII's gardens for Anne Boleyn at Hampton Court Palace. An adjacent three acres, designed by the first American landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted has been restored and revitalized into The Frederick Law Olmsted Park, along with a Memorial Arch designed by and in honor of Louis I. Kahn, America's greatest architect of the last half of the 20th century. The Arch is currently on hold as our non-profit organization seeks sponsors and donors who will assist in this effort.
