Picasso and Marie-Thérèse: L'amour fou

It's spring (so they say), and who doesn't love love in the spring (as my last post so wonderfully displayed)?  Well, another location in Chelsea is also displaying love - for free.  That doesn't sound quite correct, but stick with me here.  To get to the point, the Gagosian Gallery on 21st Street between 10th and 11th Avenues has an exhibit that would make most museums envious.  (As my old Wharton friend asked as we walked through the gallery, "What's the business model behind this?")  Yeah, well, given there is no entrance fee to walk through the well-lit galleries that are filled with many of Picasso's most daring works of the period 1927-1940, of and inspired by his muse, Marie-Thérèse, someone else (more educated in the art biz than myself) will have to answer that question.   This wonderful exhibit will be open through June 25, 2011.

And, if spring ever does arrive, The High Line is right nearby for an inspiring stroll before or after.
