« 50 Near Perfect Books of German Poetry | Main | IKB: "Locust" to the Rescue »

August 21, 2008



I visited the Neue Gallerie last time I was in NYC. It appears that they have added a lot of work since then.
I thought that some of the offerings, as I wrote elsewhere, were examples of "outre and sometimes lascivious rich people's taste."
But that was before Lauder acquired the middlebrow Klimt portrait, which I saw in Vienna. I confess it's one of my favorite paintings for the very sentimental reason that Adele Bloch- Bauer, the model for this portrait, looks so much like my younger daughter. The story of Lauder's acquisition of this painting, which I read a while ago in the New Yorker, is quite the saga.
I believe I saw a Beckman self portrait when I was there, but I can't remember if that's the one. He seems so typical yet so distinctive. That's quite a paradox.
