...I prefer words like that.
Been to the Frick in the years gone by? Did any artwork show a flock of feathered birds with a fleck or two of red?
Loved this post, Sturgis. I wrote an op ed piece lots of years back that dealt with an op ed piece about the movie, The Big Lebowski. The guy had written that a work beginning with "F" and ending with "K" had been used 13o (or more times) in the movie.
I started the essay by noting that with the name Frank, the comment had captured my attention. I opined that the author probably did not mean fork, funk, flock and several other f - k words, including Frank. And then had some fun with it...ending up, if you can figure this, with a shot at Miss Manners.
BUT, aside from all that..it is a sad thing that I have NOT seen the Frick collection. The Frick and the Guggenheim are the two collections in the City that I have not managed to visit. I visit the MET almost once every year and MoMA almost as often. Been to the Cloisters...and almost every other rickydink place, but not the Frick. So it is a glaring and unacceptable error on my part. Your question made me feel so disappointed in myself, I suspect if this coronavirus thing were not on, I probably would visit there tomorrow.
It may still happen. The virus can't put us completely out of business.
