i recently returned from the most extraordinary trip to new york.  the primary purpose was to help a client select some artwork for their residential interior design project.

exceedingly successful.  and, exceptionally inspiring.

i spent most of the time that i wasn’t working gallery and museum hopping.  joan mitchell, john chamberlain, and sol lewitt in chelsea.  sean scully on the upper east side.  the breathtaking zao wou-ki abstract expressionist painting exhibition at asia society.  and at the whitney, the brilliant carmen herrera modernist painting exhibition.

i hope that you enjoy scrolling through the following posts as much as carmen herrera is enjoying having her first retrospective museum exhibition at the age of 101!

unfortunately, my trip to new york preceded the opening of joan mitchell:  drawing into painting.  fortunately, one of the gallery directors at cheim & read kindly presented a preview of available pastel on paper drawings for my client’s consideration.  which one do you prefer?
