Still to Be Seen: Picasso, Beckman, Albers, FLW

What's Left to See:
Frank Lloyd Wright: The Vertical Dimension @the Skyscraper Museum , through Jan. 9. Last chance to see this show before it closes.

@Richard Feigen & Co. 34 E.69th St. through Jan. 31. Two giants in a tete-a-tete.

Jacob Lawrence's War Series @ the Whitney Museum
Through Jan. 31.

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

What to Read:

I recently finished Ada Louise Huxtable's biography of Frank Lloyd Wright, a concise and compelling overview of the “greatest Architect of all time”.

Tom Wolfe’s “I Am Charlotte Simons”
While Tom can be a might turgid at times, I still savor his turns-of-phrases, bon mots and outragous-ness.
