Meanwhile, some of the most exquisite decorative arts in town are by early 19th century masters such as Adolf Loos and Koloman Moser and displayed at the Neue Gallerie, Fifth Ave. and 86 St., Ronald Lauder's elegant new museum. While admiring these precious objects (and taking in Leonard Lauder's shimmering Klimts), you also should peruse the beautiful paintings and book by Oskar Kokos (on view only through June 10).
Just down the Avenue from the Neue Gallerie, "Adrian: American Glamour" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fifth Ave. and 82 St., celebrates the work of a designer who was an inspiration to the worlds of theater, movie, and fashion. Adrian's gown for Joan Crawford in Letty Lynton (1932) was such a sensation that Macy's bragged about selling 15,000 copies. Sears featured its own version for $1.29.
And if thoughts of the moving image move you, The American Museum of the Moving Image, 35 Ave. at 36 St., Astoria, Queens, has a core exhibit: "Behind The Screen," with information on everything from animation to licensing.
Simultaneously, The Museum of Television and Radio, 25 W. 52 St., where you can watch and listen to more than 100,000 television and radio programs, is featuring "The Sound of His Music, a Tribute to Richard Rodgers." This includes a screening of Carousel (1967) with Robert Goulet and Mary Grover at the Armstrong Circle Theater.
