Catalogue Note

The Meadows in May was formerly owned by William S. Kimball of Rochester, New York, who made his great fortune in tobacco. He lived in what was referred to as “Kimball’s Castle,” a replica of a Swiss chalet boasting thirty rooms and a gallery to house the family’s notable collection of both American and European art (Michael Leavy, Rochester’s Corn Hill: The Historic Third Ward, 2003, p. 84). The house was one of only two in the world designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany (see lot 9).
