No flash on the Rothko, please

Photos are permitted, just don’t use the flash on these mid-century paintings; it’s not good for their aging surfaces. “Abstract Expressionist New York,” comprised of works from MOMA’s collection, is the museum’s fall to spring blockbuster. Familiar names figure largely, of course: Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Hans Hofmann, Lee Krasner, and David Smith. It’s not a bad show, just rather familiar.
