What did you do today?

I went to the National Academy Museum & School. I saw "Will Barnet at 100," and it is a marvelous exhibit.

From their website:
"In the first New York retrospective of the artist’s work, Will Barnet at 100 will explore the dialogue between figuration and abstraction that has defined Barnet’s remarkable 80-year career. A painter, printmaker and teacher who has worked largely outside the various schools of Modernism, Barnet has made significant and unique contributions to American art in the realms of both abstraction and figuration. Will Barnet at 100 will feature approximately 45 works from private and museum collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Montclair Art Museum, and the Neuberger Museum of Art."
