The high quality and focus of Lauder’s collection is impressive and the result of decades of pursuit and refinement. But even more impressive is, of course, the work of the artists. And while these works will eventually go to the Met, they are only on view for the moment this fall. Something not to be missed.
Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs is curated by Karl Buchberg, Jodi Hauptman and Samantha Friedman and is on view at the Museum of Modern Art through February 5, 2015.
Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection is curated by Rebecca Rabinow and Emily Braun and is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until February 16, 2015.
