This web site seeks to fill a niche that has too long been vacant: the provision of high quality color reproductions of artwork generated in the design of musicals, plays, operas and films to the public they deserve. The artwork made available in reproduction form on this site was originally executed as tools to inform and assist producers, directors, actors and choreographers. But in the hands of the best designers for the stage, they became fine art in and of themselves, pieces coveted by collectors and theatre professionals alike. For many years, originals such as those replicated on this web site have either resided in private collections or been accessible to the public only in museums and research libraries. They have occasionally appeared at auction for prices in the thousands, beyond the reach of many of those who would be interested in enjoying a piece of the visual history of the performing arts.
Broadway Art Enterprises (BAE) has secured all requisite reproduction rights to the works offered on this web site, and is committed to offering both images and color reproduction technology of the highest quality. Occasionally, when time and scenic artists have taken a toll on an original (subjecting it to paint smears or tears, for example), BAE has digitally restored the image to its original beauty. Each BAE print is carefully color controlled through modern archival inkjet technology and printed on watercolor paper, duplicating the original artwork in every exquisite detail.
So whether your interest lies in Broadway, ballet, opera or film, we hope you'll pause a moment on this web site to enjoy the color and imagination that brought the music of these productions.
