Conrad New York Midtown Debuts
Hyperrealist Sculpture 'Leda and the Swan' by
Artist Carole Feuerman


This Permanent Installation Serves as the Cornerstone of Conrad New York
Midtown's Avant-Garde Art Program


NEW YORK, August 16, 2019 

Conrad New York Midtown unveiled "Lida & The Swan" by hyperrealist artist Carole A. Feuerman. This permanent sculpture installation in the lobby serves as the hallmark of the hotel’s extensive, curated art program and a nod to Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to the arts. Influenced by the Greek myth of the same name, this

contemporary sculpture revives the story by bringing in modern themes of feminism and strength. Upon entering the lobby, guests’ eyes are immediately drawn to the larger-than-life sculpture depicting a female figure in an ornate bathing costume and crystal-clad swim cap lounging on a bright white inflatable swan. The life-like sculpture appears to float on the plinth, layering in a Zen mood to the calm and serene lobby space. Feuerman’s interpretation of the classic tale – where Zeus, disguised as a swan, overpowers and seduces Leda who then bore Helen of Troy – showcases Leda, the bather, in a position of feminine dominance over Zeus, the swan. “Conrad New York Midtown’s art collection inspires guests to appreciate the array of art that New York City offers,” said Robert H. Rechtermann, general manager. “Given our location in Midtown, we’re steps away from the Museum of Art and Design, as well as the soon-to-be reopened Museum of Modern Art, and have a bevy of very talented artists at our fingertips. Carole’s sculpture is the perfect commissioned piece of art to entrance guests and introduces them to our art program.” Feuerman, a born-and-bred New Yorker, is the sole female founding member of the 1970s’ hyperrealist movement, and her art has garnered worldwide acclaim. Leda and the Swan is made with  Lacquer, 24k gold leaf, and Swarovski Crystals, which allow the light to refract and sparkle, much like it would if placed on the surface of a body of water. The sculpture is meticulously rendered with hundreds of layers of paint to portray the nuances of life-like skin tones. It was commissioned and purchased by Conrad New York Midtown and will be on permanent display in the lobby of the hotel.


“I like the idea that my work inspires the viewers to look closely at what stands before them. It
encourages flights of fantasy and involves the viewer with an intimacy they didn’t expect at first
glance. If museums and art are at the top of your itinerary when you travel, you’ll find the Conrad New York Midtown a great way to get cultured,” said Feuerman.


The sculpture Leda and the Swan is just one of the many notable pieces throughout Conrad New York Midtown that exemplify New York’s progressive art history. The hotel’s curated collection consists of over 40 pieces, incorporating pivotal artistic movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, street photography, jazz improvisation, Broadway theater, and collections from the MOMA, the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other standout pieces include an original Henri Matisse lithograph, two original Andy Warhol silkscreens and two limited edition photographs by Amy Judd.


About Carole A. Feuerman
Carole is a born-and-bred New Yorker who paid her way through art school at SVA by illustrating high-profile album covers for artists such as The Rolling Stones and Alice Cooper, as well as a cover of National Lampoon. Following school, Carole began touring Europe to establish herself among an art community that had historically valued male artists. She went on to become the sole female founding member of the hyperrealist movement in the 1970s. Her art has become her way of expressing her thoughts about female activism, and Leda and the Swan tells a story that mimics her own - one of strength, survival, and the struggle to achieve.
She has taught, lectured, and given workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture. In 2011, she founded the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation. Her art is in the collections of the President and Senator Hillary Clinton, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Mikhail Gorbachev Art Foundation, the Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the State Hermitage in Russia. There are five monographs written about her work. Over the past 40 years, she has earned world recognition by sculpting monumental, life-sized, and museum-sized works in bronze, resin, and marble.

Carole A. Feuerman During The Venice Biennale






Carole A. Feuerman, American hyperrealist sculptor, is presented by the Global Arts Foundation and Bel Air Fine Art at an exclusive exhibition in Italy.
VENICE, ITALY, May 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- May 15, 2019 (Venice, ITA) -- Carole A. Feuerman, American hyperrealist sculptor, is presented by the Global Arts Foundation (GAA), and Bel Air Fine Art at an exclusive exhibition in Italy in conjunction to the Venice Biennale, May 10, 2019 until November 22, 2019.  Organized by the Global Arts Affairs Foundation and hosted by the European Cultural Center, Feuerman will be exhibiting seven outdoor bronze sculptures in the Giardino Della Marinaressa (Riva dei Sette Martiri, 30122 Venezia, Italy). 
The realism in Feuerman’s art stems from her desire to portray emotional and physical states of being, ranging from peacefulness to energetic vigor.  Feuerman states, “I make my sculptures about people who are comfortable in their own skin. I promote the idea of total health, with a sound mind in a sound body. This is one of the defining aspects of my realistic style. Forty years ago, showing healthy, intelligent women was a radical departure in contemporary art. Now it is a widely accepted ideal, yet most contemporary artists don’t explore this topic—at least not in figurative art. Though my art is varied and has changed over the years, my love for it continues to grow.”

New York based artist Carole A. Feuerman is acknowledged as one of the three major American hyperrealist sculptors that started the hyperrealist movement in the 1970’s. She has taught, lectured, and given workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture.  In 2011, she founded the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation. Her art is in the collections of the President and Senator Hillary Clinton, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Mikhail Gorbachev Art Foundation, the Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the State Hermitage in Russia. There are four monographs written about her work: Carole Feuerman Sculpture, by Hudson Hills Press; La Scultura Incontra la Realtà; and Swimmers, published by The Artist Book Foundation. She, is included in A History of Western Art, published by Harry N. Abrams, and written by Anthony Mason and John T. Spike. Her work is in museums, private and public collections worldwide.
