Loving Art Partnerships just returned from an art-filled Christmas week doing research in New York. The Rockefeller Center tree twinkled below our hotel window! On December 21, we officially launched LAP at the home of irrepressible art lover June Hunt-Mayer with a beautiful dinner party (Thank you George Elkins! Thank you, too, Mary Jane Harris!) At the MoMA, we wandered through the Seurat show with great friend and collector Robert Rothschild (who has two works in the show), then we visited the Whitney, the incomparable Frick Collection, and of course, the Metropolitan Museum where the splendid Baroque tapestries dazzled the eye. We buried ourselves in research at the Frick Art Reference Library sorting through boxes and boxes of Francesco De Muras and others. By the way, a stunning De Mura painting was discovered in a collector's home (it will go in the Ringling show) and Christie's and Sotheby's were helpful in tracing even more. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
