[New York Peasant by Wilfrid: December 19, 2016]
A long time since I've written about art here, which is just my laziness. I did want to to mention a couple of surprises, especially since there's still time to see for yourselves.
The last painting
I rushed to see Agnes Martin in the main, snail-space at the Guggenheim, a major show for the artist, who died twelve years ago. My main exposure to her work had been at Dia:Beacon upstate a couple of summers ago. The spacious rooms of tranquil white-to-grey, meditative studies, an oasis from the bright sunshine outside, made for a perfect environment for viewing the work.
