Bethesda Fountain Arcade, Central Park, New York
In 1991, we completed twenty-four murals for the Bethesda Fountain Arcade in New York’s Central Park. All panels are Botticino marble, and were painted in trompe l’œil to look like marble inlays and bas-reliefs. The design was inspired by the original ornaments on the outside staircase panels and by the sketches of the architect Calvert Vaux, which were completed at the time the Arcade was built.
This public project was commissioned by the Central Park Conservancy and the Art Commission of the City of New York. The project was sponsored by Revlon, Princess Borghese, and the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy.
