The Isabel O'Neil Studio for the Art of the Painted Finish is a 50 year old decorative painting studio located in New York City. Founded in 1955 by Isabel O'Neil (1908-1981) to perpetuate the art of hand painted finished on objects d'art and furniture in this modern age of machines and technology. The Studio provides one with a haven where furniture and decorative objects are made magnificent with paint. The traditions are from the Renaissance, the materials are contemporary. The Studio serves a dual purpose to both preserve this artform and insure that its traditions continue through teaching.
