Mnuchin Gallery, formerly L&M and C&M, specializes in modern art—particularly post-war American. Founded in the early '90s by former Goldman Sachs bigwig Robert Mnuchin, look to Mnuchin for exhibits that serve as intriguing footnotes to major artists' careers, such as the dramatic, final black paintings from Ab Ex master Franz Kline; the lyrical late-life collages of Joseph Cornell; or a selection of Andy Warhol's Liz Taylor, Marilyn and Jackie O. images. A standout show that worked particularly well in this intimate, crowd-free setting, juxtaposed Picasso's paintings of his mistress Dora Maar alongside a number of Willem de Kooning's women. Another score was the gallery's Jeff Koons mini mid-career retrospective, sealing the deal for the controversial artist and reminding many of his historical importance.
