Jan Brueghel the Younger (Art) Go into EMP but head straight for DoubleTake: From Monet to Lichtenstein. Pick one painting to focus on, and bond, because who knows how long it will be before you get to see it again—this is Paul Allen’s private collection, and the show closes Monday, January 1. I recommend Jan Brueghel the Younger’s trompe l’oeil painting of paintings, a circa 1625 portrait of a great cavernous hall dripping with painted and framed scenes leaning, hanging, and stacked absolutely everywhere. Venus and Cupid are hanging out in the center of the room and talking, looking for all the world like a couple of naked critics. (Experience Music Project, 325 Fifth Ave N, 367-5483. 10 am—8 pm, $8.)
