My visit to the Phillips Collection was an excellent experience. On a beautiful warm spring day we leisurely viewed amazing works by Renoir, Picasso, Rothko, O'Keefe. I found several "new" artists that I especially enjoyed.
Only 2 other people were viewing the highlight - Luncheon of the Boating Party (I may have the name wrong). We had a great discussion about color as well as the social meaning. No huge crowds.
Don't be turned off by "modern" art. Perhaps recent art would be more apt. While there were a number of totally abstract paintings, they were in a minority.
Duncan Phillips supported the talent of many artists - we owe him much.
