A blend of photography with hand-painted artistry, this painterly portrait rivals the classic look and feel of a timeless painting.

Working in the tradition of society portrait painters a century ago, Masana conducts the portrait sitting in an elegantly appointed Presidential Suite at NYC’s charming, historic, Hotel Elysée.

Cannot be combined with other certificates or used with other offers. Limit one certificate per family/household. Non-transferable. Cannot be redeemed for cash.

About the Artist: Masana’s one-of-a-kind creations are inspired by the great Masters of Art through the ages such as Vermeer, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Trained in the painting and illustrative arts several decades ago, some of his teachers harkened back to the original “Mad Men” days of artists whose works graced the covers of COLLIERS and HARPER’S MAGAZINE. It was an era of iconic illustration. He is a living link to that Golden Age of Artists. A published, award-winning photographer, today his artworks are in demand, seen in the finest homes and cherished by clients in virtually every continent in the world.
