This week, Frick curator Aimee Ng hosts us at her apartment for "Cocktails with a Curator." She tells us the story of one of John Constable's favorite and monumental paintings, 'The White Horse.' Aimee shares Constable's inventive sketches and his nostalgic memories of the English countryside. Tonight's drink is Gin and Dubonnet, reportedly Queen Elizabeth II's cocktail of choice.
