Shirley, Benedicte, Eunice (from Australia) and I spent all day looking at Art. Our first stop, Neue Galerie on E 86th Street just off Fifth Avenue, was to see the exhibition “Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933”. From their brochure: “Through paintings, drawings, architecture, film, fashion, and music, the exhibition explores…the society of the spectacle, the prevalence of advertising, the rise of the Neue Frau (New Woman); and the intersection of art and power…German artists developed extraordinary works that laid bare the essence of the era.”

On the second floor just beyond the curtain, to the right of Klimt’s exquisite golden portrait, was a small gallery filled to overflowing with paintings, drawings and a few three dimensional works. Every inch of wall space was covered. It was wonderful and exciting.

There are always throngs in front of the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer so I tried to get at least a few of them.
