The Short List: What Art to See in NYC

The Short List: Art in NYC Galleries and Museums
Always lots to see in NYC
Here is the absolute shortest list of "must-see"

Old Masters:

Duccio @ the Met
NYT article about the painting
Mucho dinaro for this little gem, no?

Raphael @ the Frick
Raphael's Mona Lisa?

Modern Masters:
Picasso / Beckman @Richard L.Feigen & Co.
A battle royale by two titans toe-to-toe and head-to-head.
34 E.69th St. through Jan. 31.

Isamu Noguchi / Romare Bearden / Jacob Lawrence @the Whitney: a triple threat at the uptown concrete bunker for difficult art during difficult times.
Bearden through Jan 9th. Noguchi through Jan. 16. Lawrence through Jan. 31.

Pre-Columbian Masters:
The Aztec Empire @ the Guggenheim Museum through Feb. 15
Aztecs in "Wrights revenge?" Sounds corny but it works.

Architecture:
Frank Lloyd Wright: The Vertical Dimension @ the Skyscraper Museum through Jan. 9.
FLW designs for a "Mile-High Building" downtown. This new museum has been on my list, but FLW is a must-see anywhere, anytime.

Design:
Josef and Anni Albers: Designs for Living @ the Cooper Hewitt through Feb. 9. Long Live the Bauhaus!

And don’t forget:

Alfred Leslie @ Allan Stone Gallery Seems Al liked to paint like De Kooning before switching to figuration... go figure.
