This Week's Art News from New York
On an unrelated note, not to be outdone by its rival down the street, Bergdorf Goodman is also using contemporary art to hawk high-end fashion from its Fifth Avenue windows. Bergdorf has enlarged reproductions of works from the Whitney's current Cy Twombly show for use as backdrops for the mannequins. (Sorry, no camera with me today, so no photos. Update: A couple snapshots of the windows just showed up in my inbox.)
Unlike Saks, though, Bergdorf now knows enough to credit its source, which it fully does. Thanks, Greg.
