This Fine Art Reproduction Was the Final Touch to a New York Dream Loft
See the potential. Renovate beautifully. Decorate uniquely. Enjoy the view.
Architect Alexander Gorlin knew the formula for owning a hip apartment in the heart of Manhattan. Gorlin shared with Curbed (now a part of New York Magazine) his creative vision and process for turning “a badly renovated studio” into “a sunny and starlit day-to-night home.”
The décor that seems to draw the most attention? Duggal Visual Solutions’ large, digital reproduction of the painting, “Militia Company of District VIII Under the Command of Captain Roelof Bicker,” by Bartholomeus van der Helst, c. 1643, from the Rijksmuseum’s archives in Amsterdam. Read more and see the print on Curbed. It’s the kind of story that makes you love New York all over again.
The painting (left) is a reproduction of Bartholomeus van der Helst’s ca. 1643 painting digitally printed by Duggal Visual Solutions. (The original is in Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum.) It arrived for installation in one piece and was stretched onto its frame on-site. Next to it is Goffredo Reggiani’s 1960s surfboard floor lamp. Photo: Eric Petschek for Curbed.
