Hearst Castle

William Randolph Hearst was an inquisitive child who at a very early age showed a keen interest in fine arts. Beginning at the age of 10, he spent 18 months with his mother making the Grand Tour of Europe. Phoebe Apperson Hearst’s own collecting activities sparked her son’s interest in art and antiques. It was the beginning of a lifetime of collecting. This successful publisher and film producer collected tapestries, paintings, architectural elements, furnishings, plus a myriad of other artistic and beautiful things. Most of these artifacts were antiques, but many furnishings were contemporary to Hearst’s time. In collaboration with architect Julia Morgan, they embarked on the long term building project of what is now known as Hearst Castle™.
