Art on the ceiling is often passed by when designing. However, it can take center stage in a restaurant because the ceiling is like a huge blank canvas available to play with and introduce something dramatic. Get inspired by this ceiling mosaic created for the Tamara Bistro in South Miami Beach’s Art Deco hotel - The National. Tamara de Lempicka, the modernist polish born artist very inspired by cubism was a well recognized painter from the roaring 1920s. If you are in South Miami Beach do not miss dining here for an ambiance of the 1920s. The mosaic was inspired by “Young Lady in Green” c. 1927. The original Oil painting on plywood created by the artist can be viewed at The National Museum of Modern Art in Paris. A nostalgic memory of my yesteryears in Miami Beach’s Art Deco district.
