Highlights in this exhibition include Larry Rivers' lyrical triumph, Ochre Dance, an homage to Matisse's seminal masterpiece La Danse. Case Study #13 image no. 01, a stunning photographic portrait of actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a modern family in crisis, by celebrated fashion photographer Steven Klein. And, Untitled 1969 (woman in high heels), a unique painted armature for an unrealized sculpture by Willem de Kooning.
