Westport, CT (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
CBS Art Collections, which represents both established and emerging artists throughout the U.S., today announced the completed sale of 20 artworks for use on the set of the highly acclaimed legal drama and primetime television series, “The Good Wife.” It is a 7 time Emmy nominated show, punctuated by Julianna Margulies recently celebrating her Emmy victory for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy awards.
“We are proud of this accomplishment, as we were able to deliver high quality art befitting of the show’s main backdrop – a well-heeled Chicago law firm - but also fitting within the show’s budget,” said Craig Babson-Smith, who launched CBS Art Collections earlier this year. “I am also excited for the artists, whose paintings will be on display every week before an audience of around 10 million viewers.”
The 20 paintings purchased for the show’s set represent a diverse group of artists, most of whom are graduates from leading art schools and artist-in-residency programs. “CBS Art Collections has made it a focus point in finding top tier talent, whose works boast price points sensitive to today’s economy with unyielding quality,” said Babson-Smith.
“The show’s set designer was very appreciative of how hard we worked to help pull the set together and how much the works of art will elevate it,” Mr. Babson-Smith added. “That was so gratifying to hear, and I hope the fans of the show will like what they see.”
