1. The Nelson Manobar


    from Visual & Critical Studies Added 21 0 0

    Jimbo Blachly and Lytle Shaw, editors of The Chadwick Family Papers, discuss the Nelson Manobar, an occupiable scale model of Admiral Nelson’s HMS Victory that was long a fixture at Chadwick Manor. At once a theatrical stage set for recitations of Nelson’s death speech, and a nautically-themed pub, the Manobar was thought lost until its recent rediscovery in a remote storage unit belonging to the Victoria and Albert Museum in Mumbai. The discussion includes the circumstances of the Manobar’s rediscovery, the saga of its passage back to the United States, and its singular place within the Chadwicks’ larger nautical collections. Gloria Kury, whose Periscope Publishing brought out The Chadwick Family Papers: A Brief Public Glimpse, moderates the lecture; artist Steve Dibenedetto is a respondent.
