We talk to Agnes Denes, best known for her extraordinary Wheatfield, a two-acre field of wheat that she planted, tended and harvested in 1982 on landfill in Lower Manhattan, as the Shed in New York opens a retrospective of her work. And we visit two new shows in the Netherlands: Rembrandt-Velázquez at the Rijksmuseum and Pieter De Hooch in Delft at the Museum Prinsenhof in Delft.
