T

he exhibition As We See It: The Collection of Gail and Ernst von Metzsch continues at the New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, Connecticut, through January 8. It showcases more than 80 of the couple’s 200 paintings collected over 40 years. They have actively supported and befriended primarily regional artists. A highlight of the catalog to the exhibition is their reminiscences of the artists, their acquiring particular pieces and their development as proponents of contemporary realism. I was told about the exhibition by Janet Monafo, two of whose giant pastels are in the exhibition. One of her small 1 pastels greets me each time Janet Monafo, Open I walk into my living room. Heart, 1994, pastel I cherish the Monafo but, on paper, 46 x 58" 064
