We commissioned this painting from a local artist. He copied a painting from the Spanish Renaissance. You might be able to find a similar print somewhere, or commission someone to make you copy.

My client already had the chairs before we designed this room. I am sorry but I don't know the manufacturer.

Love the inset metal boxes w/ sculpture. Absolutely love the painting! Gives the elegantly defined but conservative room zing - the tone ref to your architecture.

The painting is lit from recessed down lights and the busts are lit from below by uplights built into the custom shelving unit we designed.

The art is very nice. What is its name and who is the artist? Generally in the UK there is a company which can turn every art into mural. It is called "Surface view" and they are brilliant. Used them before and they ar e vy helpful.

The painting is a copy of a Spanish Renaissance painting. The copy was done by a local artist who is a friend of mine. He is very talented and also does wonderful, original paintings in a modern style.

It is not a print, but a custom painting. It is a copy of a Spanish Renaissance painting, executed by a friend of mine.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Classic Touch: Decorating with Sculpture
When featured individually and highlighted with lighting, busts will give a room presence. This library does double duty as a dining room. I envision dinner parties rich in conversation, inspired by the wise sages displayed around the room.
Becky Harris added this to Create a Place for Books
This painting is of Saint Jerome, the Patron Saint of Libraries. I just made that up, but it would be great if it were true.

Built in shelving that is architecturally appropriate to the period of the home. A ROUND table that serves multiple functions as an intimate dining table, a game table, card table, conference table, laptop table, drinks table for two comfy chairs, or a buffet for food for casual dining keeps the flow moving to the kitchen. Notice the lighted niches at the top instead of shelving in the hard to reach area anyway? A GREAT way to pop out a few fab pieces of art.
