Report from Berlin

David Evison sends this report on the current show at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin(through January 10). It includes 14 paintings by 13 artists, drawn almost entirely from the permanent collection of the New York Guggenheim:

"The 'Color Fields' show at Deutsche Guggenheim is a breath of fresh air for Berlin, as a result of masterpieces by Louis, Noland and Olitski and good paintings by Rothko , Hofmann and Frankenthaler. Huge paintings by Gene Davis, Stella and Poons (ellipses), are flashy but empty. You probably know the collection. The Olitski was the stunner for me, pink and orange and just burning. It is a small gallery with one very large room, situated on Unter den Linden, and they have had some good shows over the years.
