By Lynn Byrne. 88 year old Jeremiah Goodman is revered in the interior design world for his luminous depictions of gracious interiors. The current exhibition of his work at the New York School of Interior Design is not to be missed if you find yourself in NYC.
After I attended the lovely exhibition last week, I realized I had photographs of some of the rooms portrayed in Goodman’s paintings.
I thought it would be fun to compare reality to Goodman’s work. My scans from the exhibition catalog shown above only hint at the rich, vibrant quality of the actual paintings. Plus, I am only showing a few of the beautiful renderings. So, please still go to the exhibition.

Reed Krakoff’s townhouse. I think my photo may not be the same room/residence as the rendering because I don’t see the bookshelves. However, the art, rug, coffee table, sofa and chairs sure look like they made the grade.

The Goodman exhibition runs until December 20 at NYSID, 161 East 69th Street, Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 6:00. It is free, and a small catalog of images (where my scans came from) can be purchased at the school bookstore.
If you want your own Goodman, you can now buy a giclee print from London-based Dean Rhys Morgan. Each print is signed, numbered and titled by Jeremiah. They are in editions of 300. I can’t decide which one I want.
Finally, a wonderful book of Jeremiah Goodman’s book will be released in March 2011. It is available for pre-order on Amazon.
