Morandi at the Met
Would LOVE to get to the Morandi show at the Met before it goes down...not likely though. It is one of those once-in-a-lifetime things...they do pass.
A few things I wanna note:
1. In a beautiful review in the New Yorker Peter Schjeldahl writes:
"Even his effulgently pinkish floral still-lifes abjure virtuosity, though they beguile." what?!
thanks for the tear and share, Dad. loved the review, really; but that line got another tear out and got taped into my moleskine.
2. Following is the credit for the exhibition:
The exhibition is made possible by Jane and Robert Carroll. Additional support is provided by Isabella del Frate Rayburn and Maurice Kanbar.
Maurice Kanbar?! Gotta find out what's the story there...Maurice?
3. Further as to the credits, it reads: The exhibition was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and MAMbo—Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna.
"MAMbo—Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna"?! WINNER: Best Acronym of the Week.
