Frick Collection: Manhattan

Old fashioned sinks line the wall of the Frick Ladie’s Room with a nice glass shelf above and they even have stacks of paper cups to use for a drink of the icy cold New York tap water.  You expected a drinking fountain? Not here. Came to see the Picasso drawings. Amazing show. How could anyone draw and paint like he did in his early teens? Lest on forget his strict classical training in looking at his later work, this show reminds us of his roots.  Most astonishing are the Ingresque graphite portrait of a gentleman and the red watercolor of his is father.  The new procelain gallery was pretty amazing as well as much for the natural light flooding the formerly outdoor space as for the delightful display of mostly Meissen pieces.
