Last day.Horrid weather. Drenching. Grey. Dark. (New York has always got a certain charm but I didn’t have the right shoes that’s for sure…)
So after packing up our suitcases we decided to go to a museum; and what a remarkably unoriginal idea it turned out to be.
The Moma was the closest so armed with hotel umbrellas we walked the 0.3 miles… oh boy. I have never been to a busier place, you literally had to queue to look at paintings! Bonkers.
Still, though, the fashion exhibition was very interesting (weird to see so many item of clothing from my own closet in a museum… am I that old already?)
And the art… well the art is always amazing, I’m quite good at retreating in my own bubble and ignore the world, so I enjoyed the visit regardless of the crowds. If you’ve seen my instagram video you know what I mean.
These were my favourite pieces:
Edward HopperEllsworth Kelly
How good are they?
Crowds or not they were worth the jostling and wait.

Just heard the news….am on the edge of my seat praying you and your family are well…xxs
Jeez…so embarrassed! Was worried you were still in NYC today. Just saw your instagram and that you’re already home….😀
Could you delete my previous comments? Pretty please…xx
Great painting choices! If its still there I’d probably choose a Matisse too, ‘the red room’ (or is it called red studio, I forget). There were some fantastic Picasso’s too when I was there last year. And U completely agree with you about the Kline. Amazing that his work is being auctioned (including one if my favourites called ‘Light Mechanic’) at Christies in New York next week. I wonder where they will go?
