Charles White, at MoMA.

 

Every bit as intense, dramatic and moving as Kerry James Marshall's show was at the Met Breuer, back in late 2016.

 

In other words, just great - and go.

Run don't walk to the Morgan Library to see the two Pontormos, the amazing altarpiece as well as an equally fine portrait. Mind-blowing.

Loved this Picasso quote about Delacroix - "That bastard. He's really good."

Bruce Nauman at MoMA.  I think you have to be a Nauman fan (I am) to enjoy this show.  It doesn't have many pieces in it, but some classic and big works. It continues at PS1, and I look forward to heading there to see more.

 

Even if one isn't a fan, his influence on what "modern" art (or is that post modern modern?) is staggering.

Agreed, but I feel I’ve seen a lot of Nauman over the years. Maybe some of these pieces.

I'm pretty sure you've seen some of these pieces. Or heard them.

 

But I don't believe there has been a show of this scope, at least not in NYC, in the last decade or two.

Mm, it’s tempting. And it’s one of those maybe never again shows.

And don't forget, you also get the Charles White, at the same time.

I had an opportunity to see Posing Modernity: The Black Model from Manet and Matisse to Today at the newly re-located Wallach Gallery . Definitely a thought provoking show. See it before it moves to the Musee D'Orsay in March.
