Hidey hole behind ugly man painting, White Collar @bijoukaleidoscope

The next post in these White Collar’s Neal Caffrey’s Apartment series has arrived. The focus? The Bedroom Area.

There hasn’t been a lot of scenes in this area, but the few episodes that do spend a few seconds of airtime show a beautifully carved bed and a gorgeous armoire. Furniture-wise, it is sparse, but the pieces here are so beautiful and large.

As always, the great con artist has some beautiful art pieces in this space. As always, eclectically put together.

Best thing about the photo above is Matt Bomer’s beautiful half-naked self!

The photo above is about the only time (White Collar, Season 2, Episode 6, In the Red) you get to see the print facing Neal’s antique (and impressive) oak bed, near the corner of the wall.

That print is from the Victorian ages and is L’Absinthe Rend Fou. “Absinthe Makes You Crazy” was the propaganda message from the French government to the peoples; absinthe is a highly alcoholic drink and it was supposed to cause the drinker to go mad, given to violence, hallucination and heavy addiction.

Scary man art piece

There’s an interesting niche in the wall that Neal stores some secret items in. It is cleverly covered by a rather grotesque painting on a side hinge, rather like a little door. Quite Ecce Homo in feel.

I haven’t been able to find the source for this painting. If any of you have, please let me know so I can update this post! x

Antique tapestry

Opposite the bed hangs a tapestry, barely ever seen in the series but I managed not only to get a screenshot, but I have identified it!

It’s a Middle Eastern tapestry, maker unknown.

The Gold Moon

The far wall of the bedroom hung a painting that looks to be a silhouette of a city:

This is The Gold Moon by Joseph Pennell:

Berliner Secession poster

On the adjacent wall, there is a purple and green print and this is the Berliner Secession Art Third Exhibition Poster, created by Thomas Theodor Heine in October 1901. The original is displayed at the Jewish Museum Berlin in Germany.

Ok!

It’s a small space but the art pieces are so varied in eras, styles and sizes.

Next will be the hallway and bathroom!
