“Mr. Morgan’s Library”
One of our favorite small museums is the Morgan Library and Museum and the highlight is “Mr. Morgan’s Library.” Pierpont Morgan had the library built in 1902 adjacent to his mansion on Madison and 36th Street to house his collection of rare books and manuscripts. This majestic structure was created in a classical style based upon villas of the Italian Renaissance. The exterior is constructed of Tennessee pink marble, the blocks set with such precision that virtually no mortar was used. A simple recessed portico is flanked by a pair of stone lionesses. Restored to perfection in 2010 when the museum was expanded. While you’re there checkout the Hemingway and Matisse exhibitions. Get the details.
The Art of Style at the Met.
If you love fashion, here’s a great thing to do this winter. Head to the Met for the Costume Institute’s exhibition that focuses on the internationally renowned style icon Countess Jacqueline de Ribes, whose originality and elegance established her as one of the most celebrated fashion personas of the twentieth century. The show features about sixty ensembles of haute couture and ready-to-wear primarily from de Ribes’s personal archive, dating from 1962 to the present. A muse to haute couture designers, de Ribes eventually created her own designs and several of her of her own fancy-dress balls on a display. Get the details.
January 22–31. Winter Antiques Show.
The Winter Antiques Show is back at the Park Avenue Armory for its 62nd year. This show is considered the most prestigious art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring the “best of the best” from Antiquity through the present. The show provides new and established collectors, curators, dealers, and design professionals the opportunity to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 73 exhibitors.
