Recently a new book came out on Hildreth Meière, the artist behind such familiar NYC architectural ornaments and murals as this medallion on the front of Radio City Music Hall (photo: NY Times). Since The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meière was published, several articles have appeared. Below are handy links:
"If These Walls Could Speak, They’d Say Her Name" (NY Times)
"Art Deco New York" (NY Times slide show)
"The Best Art Deco Designer Who Almost No One Remembers" (The Atlantic)
"New book highlights work of female Art Deco muralist" (AP)
And before you ask, no, I hadn’t heard of her either, although surely there are those of you who follow this blog who have.
Additional links:
Wikipedia: Hildreth Meière
Hildreth Meiere Official Website
Goodreads: The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meiere 
Self-portrait, 1943
The book is on my wish list now.

"Radio City Music Hall"Bead Painting by TheLoneBeader
RCMH and NYC streets in beads.
Artist notes:

Now available for sale: My beaded Radio City Music Hall painting. My largest bead-painting yet inspired by my last visit to New York City! This piece consists of extreme bead embroidery hand sewn to an acrylic painted gallery wrapped canvas. Each piece of beadwork was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at time using strong nylon thread. This piece really sparkles just like NYC lights and the beadwork really pops out of the canvas in relief adding texture! This piece was a serious labor of love and took nearly one year to create from start to finish. Piece is signed by The Lone Beader and a wire is attached to the back for hanging. No need for framing! You can view the progress of this piece on my blog: http://blog.thelonebeader.com/category/radio-city/ You can also find fun merchandise (such as iPhone, iPod, & iPad cases) featuring this image at my Zazzle shop: http://www.zazzle.com/thelonebeader*Media: glass seed beads, acrylics, speaker grill fabricDimensions: 30” x 40” (76 x 102cm)
