I visited the Bruce Museum in Greenwich a few weeks ago for the first time, inspired by an article in The New York Times. The museum is currently hosting an exhibit called Paris Portraits: Artists, Friends and Lovers. Work includes paintings, drawings and sculptures by artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Max Ernst, Max Beckmann, and Duchamp.
For a rather small, local museum, this was an extraordinary exhibit full of both famous and obscure pieces. It reminded me a lot of a great show I saw in March 2000 at the Royal Academy of Arts in London called 1900: Art at the Crossroads.
Check it out before the exhibit leaves town on January 4th. The Bruce Museum, One Museum Drive, Greenwich, CT. Admission for adults is $7.00.
