Classic Works Of Art To Go On Display In Oscars Greenroom
The Academy Awards take place on Sunday February 27 and once again Architectural Digest is hosting a well-appointed "greenroom" for the celebrity attendees. Fine art dealer Questroyal Fine Art of New York City has announced that six of its painting are part of the Architectural Digest greenroom at the Oscars. Designer Michael S. Smith, who was tapped by the Obamas to create the look for their family quarters at the White House, went for a classic American look inspired by luxe, tailored 1940s Hollywood style. He used furnishings from his personal line with Baker Furniture and handpicked six paintings from the Questroyal collection to decorate the room.
The six paintings are: Thomas Hart Benton, Swing Your Partner; Arthur B. Carles, Calla Lilies; Childe Hassam, Hollyhocks, Isle of Shoals, 1902; Rockwell Kent, Alpes-Maritimes; Reginald Marsh, New York City Women and Paul Sawyier, Lower New York. After the event paintings will be on view at Questroyal Fine Art starting March 10, 2011. In the rendering above you can see Benton's Swing Your Partner placed over the bar area. The painting was done in 1945 and shows a celebration of exuberant dancers.
