THE PARK Avenue Armory – its crenellated bulk so very not Park Avenue – isn’t even handsome any more, now that the cleaning of its weathered façade has exposed its teeth-on-edge scarlet brick.

Built by subscription in 1879 for the Seventh, New York’s ‘Silk Stocking’ National Guard Regiment, the Armory’s heart is its colossal, aeroplane-hangar drill hall, so cavernous that the gentlemen of the regiment presented Wagner there (fittingly) and held chariot races, which they couldn’t do at home.

They engaged artists to adorn their palace forts with vibrant murals: scenes of epic tales and erotic poetry. They commissioned smaller pictures too: works on paper to be read while seated, passed around and discussed. Pahari painters – pahari literally meaning ‘of the hills’ – worked closely with their royal patrons to produce ambitious series, often comprising over 100 or 200 paintings. It was a hereditary profession with skills handed down in family workshops. Younger members would…
