Coloring Book - La Fonda Del Sol

Alexander Girard, 2018

Alexander Girard (1907–1993) was one of the most influential textile artists and interior designers of the twentieth century. He created worlds of colourful opulence in which everything was precisely and artfully coordinated, from the smallest details to the big picture.

Among Girard’s most well-known works is the stunning interior design of the legendary New York-based restaurant La Fonda Del Sol (1960). The restaurant’s central motif was the sun, which — in countless variations created by Girard — covered every little detail of the interior.

The "Coloring Book" by Alexander Girard shows various motifs of the sun which seduce for painting.
