It is a place of beauty — not only are there magnificent artworks at the Currier, but grand architecture as well. That makes it the perfect venue to display gorgeous gowns and the accoutrements of a wedding feast. As inspiration for color and design, we used the well-known Impressionist painting, “Mercie Cutting Flowers,” by New Hampshire artist Edmund Tarbell.

Edmund Charles TarbellAmerican, 1862-1938 Mercie Cutting Flowers, 1912 Oil on canvas 33 1/2 in. x 27 1/2 in. Partial gift of Henry and Clara Mixter and purchased with funds provided by Henry Melville Fuller and many friends of the Currier, 1998.2
