Our Visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (not to brag but we saw the new Picasso) Spring 2013

DSCN8189Many intrepid Estates Trusts and Wills students joined  me at the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few weekends ago for our tour, “Honoring Decedents Over Time and  Continents”.    This semester, our timing was perfect in that we were among the first to get a view of Picasso’s 1913 cubist work “Woman in an Armchair (Eva)

The rather sexy cubist piece is the first of 78 cubist paintings donated to the museum by Leonard Lauder to go on view to the public.  Mr. Lauder, the 80 year old son of Estee Lauder, began collecting cubist paintings forty years ago.  He amassed one of the world’s finest collections. His 33 Picassos,17 Braques, 14 Legers and 14 Gris paintings are worth more than (get this) A BILLION DOLLARS!!!!

Again this semester we discovered some talented artists among us!  Check out some excellent student sketches below:

A Big Thank You to Ms V. Kim, a former Estates, Trusts and Wills student who generously volunteered her time to help guide us around the museum!
