New Amsterdam Theatre

New York, NY

The New Amsterdam Theatre was built in 1902-1903 and designed by the architecture firm Hertz and Tallant. The New Amsterdam is known as the most comprehensive Art Nouveau style theater in America. It is a New York City Landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and considered the oldest operating Broadway theater.

  • Conservation of approximately 15 murals and encaustic painted portrait panels
  • Replication of over 15 lost murals using old photos and surviving fragments
  • Replication of intricate polychromatic glazing and gilding finishes on sculpted ornament
  • Decorative painting of a new stage curtain with stenciled border in the Art Nouveau style
  • Replication of 24 gold painted faux-stained glass windows with Art Nouveau cherub and floral designs
  • Discovered and re-sculpted the maiden’s head plaster light sconces
