Wonderful John Singer Sargent show at the Met.
What a painter, what energy, what verve - how very theatrical!
How the contemporary onlookers look so deadly dull.
A splendid Henry James afternoon in Venice. How the figures are disposed in light and dark.
Most of the visitors were between sixty and death
and fun to observe.
Nice to see lots of the paintings that are so famous gathered together in one place. I enjoyed this show more even than the over the top wonderful Chinese fashion one.
We had been waiting for The Knickerbocker Hotel to reopen on 42nd Street. Times Square is not really the part of New York I most enjoy - tacky and touristy. However the hotel is wonderfully situated
to look down from the roof bar on the crowds below.
Then the bright lights come on
and the sun sets over New Jersey.
Indoors the bar is very chic and luxe.
