Artful Interiors

The Commode (also known as The Yellow Chair), 1905/12, Walter Gay.

A skilled painting of an interior possesses a degree of magic and wonder that can't be replicated in a photograph of the same space. To see more proof, click here to visit my blog at archdigest.com and the accompanying slide show.

I have a couple Mario Praz books and one on Walter Gay, but I was not really familiar with Isabelle Rey. Her fairy-tale style is an interesting match to the fanciful interiors of Chateau Gabriel, rather an example of another time, another world, itself. The interior watercolors by Alexandre Serebriakoff are hard to beat, however.

I love paintings of interiors, I also love renderings instead of CAD, they have a special quality and more personality.
