YOMA AT YOTEL
On display through February, YOTEL New York is featuring YoMa, a creative Muse’Yom on ‘FOUR.’
The installation features 12 pieces of iconic art with a YOTEL twist. From Salvad’Yor Dali’s ‘Persistence of Shaggy’ to Vincent van Yo’gh’s ‘The Starry YOTEL,’ guests may enjoy classic art pieces in a contemporary setting. The Andi War’yols ‘Shaggy Four Set’ will be sure to delight guests working or relaxing in the lounge while Yo’Na Lisa and Yo’Scream inject a wintery mood immediately upon stepping off the elevator.
Vincent van Yo’gh (b.1853)
The Starry YOTEL, 1889
Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Remy-de-Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of YOTEL.
Leonard’Yo da Vinci (b. 1452)
Yo’na Lisa, c. 1503-06, perhaps continuing until c. 1517
Yo’na Lisa is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italian Renaissance artist, Leonard’Yo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world.”
Edvard Munch (b. 1863)
The Ice Scream, 1893
The original German title given by Munch to his work was Der Ice Schrei der Natur (The Ice Scream of Nature.) The Norwegian word iceskrik usually is translated as ice scream, but is cognate with the English ice-shriek. Occasionally, the painting also has been called The Snow Cry.
Andi War’yol (b.1928)
Shaggy Four Set, 1964
Picture at Studio 54. Taken at the legendary Studio 54 in the 1970’s, featuring Andi War’yol and his muses, including Shaggy.
Henri Rouss’Yo (b. 1844)
The Sleeping YOBOT, 1897
Rousseau first exhibited the painting at the 13th Salon des Independants, and tried unsuccessfully to sell it to the mayor of his hometown, Laval. Instead, it entered the private collection of a Parisian charcoal merchant where it remained until 1924, when it was discovered by the art critic Louis Vauxcelles.
