Abstract:

Anna Thomson Dodge (1871-1970), widow of Horace E. Dodge, was heiress to one of America's great automotive fortunes. Over a fifty-year period, she used her resources to gain all of the advantages that money could buy; her most ambitious project was the creation of Rose Terrace, a Louis XVI-style house built in the early 1930s on the shores of Lake St. Clair in Grosse Pointe Farms outside of Detroit. Its focal point was the Music Room, for which Mrs. Dodge assembled one.

of the most distinguished and extensive groups of eighteenth-century French decorative arts in America. This collection was bequeathed to The Detroit Institute of Arts in 1970, later augmented by additional works acquired at auction and by gift. The Dodge Collection provides a history of Mrs. Dodge's Rose Terrace and the works of art that filled it, a comprehensive catalogue of sixty-eight objects from her bequest (all illustrated in full color), and brief entries (many.

illustrated) about dozens of additional objects now in the collection. Essays on "Anna Thomson Dodge and the Building of Rose Terrace" and "The Creation of the Dodge Collection" are illustrated with many never-before-published photographs of interior and exterior views of this fabled residence.
