New York, NY USA

Didier Aaron, Inc. will donate 10% of all proceeds from the sale of the watercolors to the Central Park Conservancy

The exhibition CENTRAL PARK NYC documents the beauty and diversity of Central Park’s architecture, sculpture and ornament—the rich complement of pavilions, bridges, memorials and monuments that enrich this National Historic Landmark and that in themselves constitute a cherished element of New York City’s cultural heritage. The watercolors range widely in format, from intimately scaled studies to large ornamental details dramatically rendered at life-size, and present both well-known park landmarks and the discovery of lost structures and unrealized projects from the era of the Park’s construction.

The exhibition also celebrates the publication by Rizzoli USA of CENTRAL PARK NYC, the artists’ eighth book, illustrated with these watercolors, and which will be available for purchase.

An encyclopedic knowledge of architectural and garden history underlies the luminous and exacting watercolors of Andrew Zega and Bernd H. Dams. Their authoritative restitutions of historic buildings are rendered in a highly realistic watercolor technique that has become their trademark. Their complementary training and skills as architects, historians, watercolorists and writers has ensured that each of their investigative projects has been rich in interpretive discoveries, as well as producing oftenrevelatory drawings.

The artists began their careers in New York City and in 1995 established their partnership, Architectural Watercolors, in Paris, France. Today, their works are found in the collections of the New-York Historical Society, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Louvre’s Musée des Arts-décoratifs, the Museum of the Île-de-France, Princeton University and the Getty Center’s artist’s books collection.

is the artists’ eighth book and the third published with Rizzoli. They have also published three limited-edition artist’s books: Chinoiseries (2005), Versailles (2007) and An Architectural Alphabet (2008).
