Those of you who follow me know how much I love drapery and, moreover, how much I admire the extraordinary material effects Canova achieved—here in plaster for his statue of George Washington now at the Frick. #georgewashington #washington #statue #scultupture #masterpiece #canova #patriotism #frick #newyork #possagno

When was the last time you looked at The Met’s Goya’s? Now reinstalled. #goya #metropolitanmuseumofart #newyork #masterpieces #paintings #spain
