Part of a set of furniture designed for the music room in the New York residence of Henry G. Marquand on Madison Avenue at Sixty-eighth Street. Marquand was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum and its president from 1890 until 1902. The upholstery is modern: silkscreened designs were specially commissioned in an attempt to evoke the original richly embroidered panels of the settee's seat and back.
