Dining Room of the Interior Designer Carlos de Beistegui , Paris, 1960
Jeremiah Goodman born in 1922 has painted illustrations of interior spaces for nearly every design magazine from the 1950s through the present. His moody gouache paintings “interpreted” the homes of international luminaries and spaces created by global design leaders: Bruce Weber, Edward Albee, Yves Saint Laurent, Mario Buatta, Billy Baldwin, Elsie de Wolfe, Diana Vreeland, the Duchess of Windsor, Rose Cumming, Sir John Gielgud‚ Greta Garbo, Cecil Beaton, etc.
This is good. So good. ;D; I think it’s a fantastic example of how you don’t need to render everything or be perfectly accurate in proportion or perspective. I prize getting the mood across over anything else, really.
i love how it feels silent, how it’s a quite room that once saw a lot of action but isn’t now, and it kind of basks in afternoon sunlight…
