First Fridays at Neue Gallery

In New York, there are 3 essential things you have to have : 1- your sunglasses, 2- an umbrella, 3- an agenda/calendar or a very good memory.

Yeah baby! There are some events you can't miss such as First Fridays of the Month at Neue Gallery. This marvelous museum is open to the public for free from 6 pm to 8 pm. Please arrive on time if you want to enjoy all the treasures of that German and Austrian early 20th century art.

Here resides some masterpieces from Klimt, Kandisky, Schiele, Kokoschka, Klee, Kirshner, Grosz, Otoo Dix and so many others that I didn't know at all and had the pleasure to discover. Some samples here below:
Ludwig Meidner - Apocalyptic Landscape

 Sigmar Polke - B-Mode

Erich Heckel - Windmill

Et forcément pas besoin de le nommer mais juste pour le plaisir, on dirait vraiment de l'or quand on le voit en vrai

 This museum has been founded by 2 friends fan of art, collector and businessmen. Thanks guys!  

Two of the principal goals of the Neue Galerie New York are to bring a sense of perspective back to Germanic culture of this period, and to make the best of this work available to American and other audiences for both scholarly and aesthetic inquiry. A nice way to celebrate New York and its fount of culture.

Take the advantage of being here to visit the medieval room (it if is still there as they often change their exhibits) and go get a break at cafe Sabarsky, very cute Eastern European Style café. 

No no you are not in Vienna, you're still in New York!

Now you know what to to do next First Friday.
