.....And then there’s the small, wonderfully dense Gallery 4, loosely devoted to still life with works from 1915 to the early 1950s. My favorite on either floor right now, this selection juxtaposes paintings by Matisse, Braque and Giorgio Morandi with surprises by, among others, the American outsider Forrest Bess, Bernard Buffet (French), Gertrude Green (American), Emilio Pettoruti (Argentine) and Amelia Peláez Del Casal (Cuban). The Del Casal, “Fishes,” was painted in 1943 under the spell of Picasso (and acquired the following year), but it definitely has a mind of its own.
