THE MOSAICS AT THE FRANKLIN HOTEL

2004

The collection of nine mosaic paintings created for The Franklin Hotel showcase themes and images relating to the history and well-known sections of Central Park at the turn of the 20th century. There is one painting displayed on each of the boutique hotel floors. Central Park was completed in 1873 and designated a National historic Landmark in a 1963.

The pieces were created in the mosaic technique called Pique Assiette, which literally means “plate stealer” in French. The term now refers to mosaic work that is predominantly composed of pieces of broken crockery and glass.
