The Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation

I did this today, and it was a real treat. Their four story home which also served as Chaim Gross's studio is open to the public. I had a lovely solo tour of the house and gallery including his studio which is untouched down to his box of crayons still on his work table by a lovely and knowledgeable ass't to the director of the foundation.  And then there's the remarkable collection of art that they collected over the years including drawings and paintings by many of the greats of the 20th Century both European and American along with a superb collection of African Art. I was oohing all over the place. You can actually go into their living room and I was even allowed to peek into their rather modest kitchen. This is a hidden treasure of the city and you can visit on thur & fridays 1-5 or by appointment.
