Treasures from the Norton Simon travel to New York
The Norton Simon is one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles, or for that matter anywhere in the world. Beautiful architecture, housing collections of European and Asian art. In particular I rank Francisco de Zurbaran’s Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose (below) among the most remarkable paintings I have ever had the privilege of admiring.
Well, along with other treasures from the Norton Simon, it is now on display in New York thanks to an exhibition organized by The Frick Collection. Rubens, Murillo and Bassano, among others, are also part of the show. And keep in mind this is only a tiny part of the collections of the Norton Simon.
Until May 10, 2009.
