But it looks like it’s about 100, maybe 110, in Florine Stettheimer’s 1919 painting Heat, which is on view at the Brooklyn Museum.

The Whitney also notes that its 1931 Stettheimer, Sun, can have a remarkable warming effect. T. J. Wilcox has included it in the jewel box of an exhibition that he organized to accompany his magnificent video “In the Air.”

You know what they say about museums: it’s almost always the same temperature inside of them!
