Diane Arbus & William Eggleston. Cheim & Read has two great photo exhibits happening concurrently - Diane Arbus' In the Absence of Others and William Eggleston's 21st Century.

Diane Arbus & William Eggleston

Would the cognitive value of Manet's painting diminish if the newspaper reports that informed him were false?

Can you appreciate Manet's painting if you do not know the story behind it? How much historical knowledge is needed to understand works of art?
