Yes, there are a lot of things to dislike about art fairs. There are the crowds, the lines, the expense—one salad in the VIP lounge at Art Basel, which opened today, costs 45 Swiss francs, or about $48 (it includes edible flowers). And yet, one gets to see a breathtaking array of art in one convenient location, much of which one may never see again. There are 300 galleries at Basel this year, all stocked with some of their finest offerings. Surprises abound. Pleasure too. Below, some highlights from the aisles.
