Frieze NY 2018 #1 The Big Names
The thing I was in New York for a few weeks back was the Frieze Art Fair. Hundreds of art galleries show their work in booths under massive tents on Randall's Island. It's an art-looker-at-er's (and also a people-watcher's) paradise.
Here is the first of several posts about art that caught my eye at the fair -- this one about the major big-names and heavy-hitters' work on view. Just imagine being an extremely wealthy person going shopping among these blue-chip pictures!

Willem De Kooning
Andy Warhol "Angry Dog"
(all the boys want to be) Raymond Pettibone
Keith Haring (this was like the Church of Keith Haring - no way were you going to get an unimpeded photograph of this painting)
