Fall for Art

There are plenty of amazing exhibitions now on view in NYC that are sure to get us all excited about the change of season.  Here are some must-see shows:

Vermeer’s Masterpiece The Milkmaid is now on view through November 29th at the Met.  The famed Vermeer painting of the young woman is on loan to the Met from Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum and is on view with five other Vermeer paintings and various other Dutch paintings from the Met’s collection.  Also at the Met, in case you missed it this spring or summer there is still time to see Roxy Paine on the Roof, Maelstrom.

The Whitney Museum of American Art brings us one of the most intriguing exhibitions of all in Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction opening tomorrow.  This exhibition takes us beyond the shells, flowers and desert skies we typically associate with O’Keeffe and delves into the more subtle and sensual lines and shades of her abstract drawings and paintings.

From abstraction to non-objective painting… The Guggenheim highlights one of the core artists in its permanent collection with its exhibition Kandinsky, opening later this week.  This is a rare opportunity to see so much of the artist’s work in one location.

As for art fairs, be sure to attend Modernism + Art20 November 13-16 at the Park Avenue Armory.
