If You Ever Plan To Motor West

Well the Missus and I took a spin out to the Berkshires to examine the artwork currently on view there and this is what we saw:

• The Clark’s landmark exhibit “Picasso Looks at Degas,” which brilliantly traces the lines that connect the tectonic Spaniard to the iconic Frenchman.  (Splendid Wall Street Journal review here.)

One example:

This show is worth every mile.

• No less than six exhibits at MASS MoCA, all of which are a gas. But the Petah Coyne retrospective “Everything That Rises Must Converge” (tip o’ the pen to Flannery O’Connor) is absolutely eye-popping.

A sample:

And that’s not even the best of them.

• The always captivating Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio, home of Park Avenue Cubists Suzy Frelinghuysen and George L. K. Morris.

Inspired by Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius on the outside, and infused with the couple’s work on the inside, their house is a wonder of architecture and art.

A taste:

You really can’t visit too often.
