Abbeville in the Times

If you were reading the Art & Design section of the New York Times this weekend—and of course you were, stylish reader—then you may have noticed the feature on Lin Arison, patron of the arts and author of our recent book Travels with Van Gogh and the Impressionists: Discovering the Connections. Besides discussing Arison’s philanthropic work through the YoungArts program she developed with her late husband, Ted—work in which she’s now joined by her granddaughter Sarah, recently appointed head of the Arison Arts Foundation—the article also provided plentiful mention of the book, as well as coverage of the recent swanky dinner at the French Consulate on Fifth Avenue in honor of its success:

“The meal—of dishes van Gogh ate at the Auberge Ravoux outside Paris, prepared by Daniel Boulud, Yosuke Suga and Jacques Torres—was displayed on blue glass plates set beneath sky-high shoots of yellow sunflowers in homage to the artist.”

That’s how Abbeville, as they say, rolls. You can check out the rest of the article here and the book itself here. Enjoy!

Bonus Link: We’ve never visited the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, but this article just put it at the top of our list.
