“So the Eye May Wander:” The 70th Street Garden at The Frick Collection

“So the Eye May Wander:” The 70th Street Garden at The Frick Collection

I have always been drawn to Russell Page’s 70th Street Garden at The Frick Collection. Page intended this to be a viewing garden rather than one to be entered. Snow covered or green, I am happy to steal a moment and wander with my eyes through the iron gates.
