SHOP MADELEINE WEINRIB'S IKAT ACCESSORIES AT THE NEUE GALLERY STORE FOR THE BRUCKE EXHIBITION

Sometimes you just want to take in a museum without having it overwhelm. When on the Upper East Side, you can choose the Met or another gem. Few museums are as small and jewel- like as the Neue Gallery, New York's unique museum of German and Austrian Art. Not only do they have a standout book store and gift shop filled with great glass and silver, they have two fabulous restaurants-- Cafe Sabarsky overlooking Central Park and Cafe Fledermaus downstairs.
The reason for all this fanfare is this. A stunning limited edition collection of Ikat pillows and throws was made by Madeleine Weinrib for the Neue Gallery Shop. Done for the current Brucke exhibit, the multi- colored antique textiles came from her collection and are available for the run of the show. Visit, eat, shop, and make sure to see BR√úCKE: THE BIRTH OF EXPRESSIONISM IN DRESDEN AND BERLIN, 1905-1913, which runs till June 29, 2009. Make a day of it, at 1048 Fifth Avenue at 86th Street.



Glorious reds, yellows and teal make this velvet pillow lush and graphic.
