Master Interiors Illustrator

Veranda Magazine April 2008 featured Jeremiah Goodman, and some of his illustrations of his famous client's homes. He prefers to be known by his first name. He was born in 1922 in Niagara  Falls, New York. He studied at the New York School of Professional Art and at the Parson's School of Design. His first job was working for Joseph B. Platt a designer of commercial interiors. Right before he came on board, Mr. Platt designed the sets and interiors for Gone With the Wind. If you would like a collection of Mr. Goodman's life time sketches and room portraits you can purchase the coffee-table book Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision (2006).  When he found out he was going to be featured in Veranda, he offered to paint two magazine covers.  These are the ones he painted. 

A small list of some of his clients are as follows: Elsa Peretti, designer at Tiffany& Co., Edward Albee, Sir Cecil Beaton, and Elsa Schiaparelli.

The legendary interior designer Melanie Kahane told him, "You can hammer a nail in the wall, and it looks good."

  3. Nancy,
    I was so surprised when I saw the first painting of the Veranda cover! This house is from Eduard Vermeulen, a Belgian fashion designer. His label is Natan.
    This artist (painter) is so talented.
    I am so glad I found your beautiful blog!
