Demuth at the Armory

On Thursday I flew from Schiphol to JFK. I could have gotten on a bus back to Boston if I wanted to arrive at three in the morning, feeling cranky, so I opted to stay in New York. This allowed me to see the Armory Show.

I was exhausted and jetlagged and had seen enough art back in Holland. But it seemed a shame not to hit the main fair, at least, so I roused myself and marched through it. At the booth of Meredith Ward Fine Art I found something that made it all worthwhile.

For a moment, fatigue abated, replaced with delight.

A perfect picture by that most perfectionist of painters.
