You would be forgiven for forgetting your whereabouts when visiting the Frick Collection in New York's Upper East Side. An escape from the bustle of the city's traffic riddled streets and teeming crowds, Mr. Frick's private home is a realm of culture and art. Among the permanent collection, which boasts works from the likes of the great Renoir, Boucher and John Constable is the current exhibition, entitled White Gold. On display in the brand new Portico Gallery are highlights from the Arnhold Collection of Meissen Porcelain of approximately seventy of Henry Arnhold's pieces and two sculptures by Jean-Antoine Houdon, The Dead Thrush and Diana the Huntress. Even if the world of art isn't exactly your cup of jo, take it from us at Cockpit USA - the grounds in which these pieces reside is well worth a visit!
