Last week, the New York School of Interior Design opened an exhibition showing the work of illustrator Jeremiah Goodman, who did lively gouache portraits of the finest interiors for numerous covers of Interior Design magazine.
An artist's portrayal of a space can be an extremely influential point of view, because without visiting a room oneself, the only way to get a feel for its three-dimensional qualities is through a skilled interpreter. At 88 years old, Goodman has made a name for himself with his impressionistic likenesses of residential interiors. He has a rare ability to capture the personality of a space in his work, as opposed to doing technically perfect drawings of objects.
The free show will be open through December 20th at the school's building, 170 East 70th Street. Check out NYSID for more information on visiting.
