Stettheimer Dollhouse: Museum of the City of New York

Museum of the City of New York is located in East Harlem at the top of Museum Mile at 1220 Fifth Avenue @ 103rd Street and easily accessible from public transportation.

They always have such interesting exhibitions and this one did not disappoint.

STETTHEIMER DOLLHOUSE- The Stettheimer Dollhouse is a two-story, twelve-room dollhouse, created by Carrie Walter Stettheimer (1869-1944) over the course of twenty-five years, from 1916 to 1935. It contains miniature art made for the dollhouse by artists like Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Archipenko, George Bellows, Gaston Lachaise, and Marguerite Zorach.

After her mother's death in 1935, Carrie stopped working on the dollhouse and some rooms were left unfinished. Her sister Ettie (who survived both Florine and Carrie) donated the dollhouse to the Museum of the City of New York in 1945; she arranged the unfinished rooms (the Art Gallery or Ballroom and the Dining Room) as she thought her sister would have wanted them.

The dollhouse is about 28 inches tall, 50 inches long, and 35 inches wide.
