a great visit, a new friend / by Philip Tarlow

view from the window

today we visited the home of a very unusual couple. i had a long and gratifying conversation with john, and my wife had one with his wife out on the terrace. they have a beautiful collection, mostly limited edition prints purchased over the years at manhattan auction houses. the collection includes works by goya, rembrandt, miro, rivera, picasso, gaugun, and delaunay.

on the right is a view from their window, and included in the images of his collection, below, is a drawing i made based on this view, which is now in their collection.
