Inspired Impressions~The Interiors of Jeremiah Goodman

Claude Guidi, interior decorator, Buenos Aires

Jeremiah Goodman, now 88, a treasure in the design community, made a career out of painting gouache portraits of some of the finest interiors over the last many decades.  Stylish names in fashion, politics, publishing, as well as celebrities and royalty have commissioned Mr. Goodman to capture their beloved interiors in his signature etherial style.

Jeremiah works everyday in a corner studio space he created in his Upper East side apartment.  There was a wonderful retrospective of his work at the New York School of Interior Design this past fall and I am sure it will not be the last.  Jeremiah's popularity is really growing.  I just friended him on facebook.

Thru the discerning eye of an artist, Mr. Goodman captures light and shadow. He manipulates scale and creates a mood.  He infuses static rooms with warmth and personality bringing them vitality and life.

"It takes a really fine artist to give us the sense of being in the room, of being able to move about the space, touch, react, get beyond the facts to the reasoning behind them"  Edward Albee

Below is Jeremiah's favorite painting, he said; it expresses the romantic glamour and mystery of the past

For the first time, Jeremiah has released giclee prints of some of his interiors.  They are being offered by London based art dealer  Dean Rhys Morgan.  I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of the picture I was able to purchase, the artist proof, of one of my favorite rooms (the first picture in this story) which will proudly hang in my office.

To learn more about Jeremiah, he has a stunning book out, now it its second printing
