Whistler at the Frick

Had the pleasure of attending one of my favorite museums in New York, the Frick museum, to see the Whistler etchings on exhibit. The mansion - on 5th Avenue, across from Central Park, still filled with wonderful antique furniture - is of course gorgeous, and there's not a single unpleasant work in the entire place [they say Frick didn't want to live with volatile art, and as such is filled to the brim with French, Dutch, and English paintings. Oh, and an entire Fragonard room (!)].

Aren't they all great? So modern and antiquated. And I have to love the fact that most of the works started out in the Pittsburgh mansion
