Art of the Pabst Mansion Booklet - 'The Perfect Glass'

Art of the Pabst Mansion Booklet - 'The Perfect Glass'
History largely remembers the name Pabst because of the Pabst Brewing Co. and, notably, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.  Few people today recognize Captain Frederick and Maria Pabst for being among the Midwest's leading art collectors in the19th century.  

The Pabst Mansion Art Guide highlights some of the pieces housed at the Mansion viewed daily by visitors and staff.  Some of the works are original and have been placed as they appreared during the Pabst family's time here.  Other works were collected by the Pabsts but initially decorated the walls of other venues.  Other selections are pieces originally collected by Emil Blatz and left to Milwaukee County upon his death to be enjoyed by citizens of the community.  All of the works have stories to tell, and help the Pabst Mansion tell you the tale of the Pabst Family, the Gilded Age, and 19th century Milwaukee.
