Jeremiah, Inspired Interiors

Curator Dean Rhys Morgan is pleased to present Jeremiah, Inspired Interiors, a sweeping exhibition of 100 paintings by renowned room portraitist and illustrator Jeremiah Goodman whose works comprise the ultimate record of America’s greatest interiors.

Timed both to the release of the new book Jeremiah, Intimate Interiors, edited by Rhys Morgan and published by Powerhouse and to cap off New York Design Center’s annual What’s New What’s Next design celebration, the show will open on September 13th, 2018 at the Gallery at 200 Lexington on the 10th floor of the New York Design Center.

Expect to see Goodman’s room portraits for names like Bill Blass, Betsy Bloomingdale, Carlos de Beistegui, Rose Cummings, Tony Duquette, John Gielgud, Carolina Herrera, Reed Krakoff, Elsa Peretti, Marjorie Shushan and Diana Vreeland to name a few. Also on view will be a selection of original covers painted for Interior Design magazine from the mid 1950s to late 1960s and a vignette featuring Goodman’s easel, paints and brushes. All the works come from Goodman’s personal archive and many have never been seen until now.

To kick off the exhibition, Architectural Digest’s Mitch Owens will lead Dean Rhys Morgan, Emily Eerdmans, and Alex Papachristidis in a lunchtime discussion about Goodman’s life and legacy at 12:45 PM in the Gallery.

Inducted to the prestigious Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1987 Jeremiah Goodman has long been revered within the interior design community for his ability to infuse static rooms with warmth and personality. The artist passed away last September at the age of 95. Working until his last days he enjoyed an almost seven-decade career of chronicling the homes of a veritable Who’s Who of powerbrokers in the Broadway, Hollywood, fashion and decorating worlds creating glamorous and romantic renderings that are as timely today as when executed from 1949 to 2012.

A selection of the paintings are available for sale through The Gallery at 200 Lex.
