For revisting a classic

Marsden Hartley's Maine at the Met Breuer

945 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10021

Marsden Hartley‘s Maine at Met Breuer is really terrific;  illuminating the deep influence his native state had on his work. The recent renovation of the former Whitney building for the Met is worth a trip on its own; the Marcel Breuer building looks so fresh and more beautiful than ever.
