To resurrect the Wormser Bedroom, we relied closely on photographs of the interior taken in 1930. Zooming into these old pictures, we were able to take inventory of Elaine’s collection and determine which pups remained and which, over the years, had gone astray.

Next summer, the Cincinnati Art Museum will display an exhibition based on Urban’s late 1920s commission for the Wormser family of Chicago. Over several years of researching this work of art, a bedroom for a young woman, the curatorial team gleaned information about the workers and manufacturers who potentially fabricated many of the room’s design elements.
