Yesterday was one of those days where traffic didn't exist and everything seemed euphoric. From meeting Leigh, one of this blog's first commenters, to seeing Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy and Germany, 1918-1936 at the Guggenheim, it was all a dream. For those of you who like what I feature on this blog, you will love that exhibit. All the interwar Neoclassicism bliss that I can't seem to get enough of. Good to know a sampling of the history in the city that will shortly be my home.
These photographs of dancer Isadora Duncan by Edward Steichen were the absolute highlight.
Daniel, are you still in NYC? Neue Galerie (5th & 86th) has charming Wiener Werkstatte post cards, show ends later this month - http://www.neuegalerie.org/exhibitions/wiener-werkst%C3%A4tte-postcards
and then downstairs for time travel and deliriously delicious food and furnishings at the fabulous Cafe Sabarsky - http://www.neuegalerie.org/cafes/sabarsky
Blast! My next NY trip will be too late for this exhibition. It looks wonderful. Is the catalogue worth buying?
Christina- I do hope to catch that show! I love the Weiner Werkstatte AND Neue Galerie. I had some sort of layered cake, with chocolate and hazelnut, at Cafe Sabarsky a few years ago and have been craving it ever since. Everytime I go back it's sold out!
Anthony- SO worth it! If I was a few pennys richer I'd buy it myself...
Agree, those photos were fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. I also loved the 360º bust of Il Duce.
EaEL- I still can't get over how my favorite paintings were in Hitler's apartment!
