Some details about the session from photographer Jeanine Thurston, “The Brown Palace Hotel has long stood as the pride of luxury hotels in Denver, Colorado – embraced by the city as its own and regarded as a national treasure. For more than a century our hotel has stood as an anchor to the bustling financial and cultural district, playing host to presidents, prime ministers, and celebrities.
We had the VERY unique opportunity to photograph at this amazing hotel featuring the Onyx room and some of the hallways and staircases.
Originally known as the Grand Salon when the hotel opened in 1892, it features white onyx wainscoting and columns, as well as an immense central medallion on the ceiling in the center of the room. Although the original onyx remains, over time the mural was destroyed. In 1980 the hotel commissioned artist M. Lloyd Way to recreate it, using notes from the hotel’s original brochure: ‘here are blue skies and soft fleecy clouds amid which rosy, blossom-wreathed cupids disport themselves.’ Since the artist had nothing more to go on, he painted the cupids faces utilizing his relatives’ (and his) likenesses, giving an adult-look to each of the cherubs.”
