Who Knew? Neutra Could Draw

New, 7 comments

Brooke Hodge, curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Contemporary Art, gives a little ink (pixels?) to the Central Library's exhibition “Richard Neutra, Architect: Sketches and Drawings" now on view downtown in today's New York Times. The exhibit includes not only Neutra's sketches of his famous buildings like the Lovell Health House, but also drawings from his travels, including Lima, Peru and 29 Palms in the Mojave Desert. Hodges even compares Neutra to fellow Viennese artist, Egon Schiele, which is incentive enough to head downtown to see Neutra's portraits. There's also an accompanying podcast of the Library's audio tour, featuring Ray Kappe and architecture enthusiast, actress, and preservationist Kelly Lynch. [NY Times]
