Beginning October 12 and continuing through November 4, the architectural watercolors of Andrew Zega and Bernd Dams will be featured in the exhibition, "The Architecture of Joy: Chinoiseries and Garden Pavilions" at Didier Aaron, Inc., in Manhattan.
The exhibition will focus on recent watercolors of centuries-old French garden pavilions and follies, some of which were commissioned by Marie Antoinette. A companion album,"Chinoiseries," bound in Shantung silk and slipcased, features fifty color plates as well as a preface from Hubert de Givenchy and an essay on the history of this whimsical architecture. Limited to 300 copies in English and 300 more in French, the luxury album is priced at $1030. But, happily, notecards are available for $3.00 each.
