Now in its 23rd year, The Armory Show is a leader in the global art fair circuit, highlighting the most prestigious artists and galleries in the world. With 200 galleries and 65,000 visitors annually, there is much to see. Here are a few of my favorites from the fair including a Calder and a Frankenthaler.
I also visited the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum which had two outstanding exhibits: Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim, and the Thannhauser Collection featuring many lovely Picasso works as well as Impressionist masters. It was exciting to see some early works by the masters of Modernism.
A few of the highlights from my gallery visits in New York were a small Braque with sunflowers as an homage to Van Gogh, a charming Degas drawing, and a stunning, early Man Ray painting.
