On Thursday, June 7, the New York Palace and Eden Fine Art presented a sculpture exhibition by Dorit Levinstein. The unveiling of artist Dorit Levinstein’s new “Studying the Masters” sculpture exhibit was held in the hotel’s famous Courtyard. The large, hand-painted, bright and multicolored bronze sculpture (entitled “Renoir’s Dancers”) was inspired by Renoir’s famous painting “Dance in the Country.” Seven smaller sculptures by Levinstein, each inspired by a different masterpiece, will be on display in the hotel lobby through Labor Day.
That evening guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers catered by the New York Palace’s Gilt to celebrate this partnership. A signature cocktail was created for the newly unveiled “Renoir’s Dancers” sculpture. Capturing the essence perfectly, the drink was a lively swirl of colors and textures, much like the sculptures themselves.
My personal favorite sculpture was “Venus,” a tribute to Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus.” Using the classic pose from Bottecelli’s painting, but adding modern patterns such as animal, polka dot, and spiral, the sculpture is still recognizable but in a different form of media.
The New York Palace is the perfect place for Levinstein’s exhibit. Celebrating both the traditional values of the past and reinventing it with modern touches, both the New York Palace and Levinstein’s exhibit have more in common then you think! So why not have a delicious cocktail in the famous Courtyard on a New York City summer night and check out artist Dorit Levinstein’s “Studying the Masters” Exhibit?
