Great Art Exhibitions in NYC

I was so excited to read the NY Times today and find such great exhibitions on display in the city!! The International Center of Photography will be hosting 4 exhibitions throughout the year all regarding fashion portraiture in photography...

The day comes when you realize you’re subscribing to all the wrong fashion magazines. A little bit of your world crumbles, or maybe a lot.

A visit to the International Center of Photography may cause such a day. The center is inaugurating a year of fashion photography exhibitions called “2009 Year of Fashion” — with four synergistic exhibitions.

Then there is a great exhibition on at The Metropolitan Museum of Art entitled "Raphael to Renoir: Drawings From the Collection of Jeann Bonna" with over 120 drawings on display! Read Holland Cotters review in the NY Times here---> "Where Lines Become a Kind of Language"

Federico Barocci


And finally "The Thaw Collection of Master Drawings" at The Morgan Library. With 2 stunning Ingres portraits on display which haven't been seen in over 100 years! AS well a number of modern drawings from Claude Monet to Ellsworth Kelly.
