WNYC's Sara Fishko gets a private tour of some of the paintings and sculptures from 1913 in MoMA's collection, some on display and others unearthed from a storage closet. Her guide is Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.
Niles Davies is the last living descendant of Arthur B. Davies, one of three artists who were largely responsible for conceiving and producing the notorious Armory Show of 1913 that introduced Cubism to America for the first time. Sara Fishko visits Niles Davies' farmhouse and gets a tour of his unique art collection scattered around his home.
