Ambroise Vollard

While you're on Fifth Avenue visiting the Klimts before the show closes, make it an arty day and scurry over to the Met to see Cézanne to Picasso: Ambroise Vollard, Patron of the Avant-Garde.
Yes, I know, you see Impressionist exhibits all the time, but this isn't simply grouping things by their time period, this is grouping paintings by an incredibly important art dealer -- each of these paintings passed through his hands and he played a role in trying to promote the artist.
