New York Times Arts

  1. “The Last Tycoon,” a nine-episode series, is the latest good-looking attempt to adapt F. Scott Fitzgerald for the screen.
  2. At 47, Jay-Z thinks about where he’s been, where he’s going and what he’s leaving behind. It’s all there on his latest album, “4:44.”
  3. Sometimes the president’s tweets program his go-to cable morning show. And sometimes the show programs him.
  4. The first American museum retrospective of the least-known — and maybe the best — of the Viennese modernists, who briefly painted like no one else.
  5. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and other major institutions escape city budget cuts, while smaller arts groups outside Manhattan may receive new resources.
  6. In “Lust for Life,” the singer worries about the future, in her pensive, dreamy way. But her main focus is still love and sorrow.
  7. In the affably amusing, sometimes spittingly funny “Girls Trip,” a weekend getaway brings trouble, laughs and sisterhood.
  8. In “The Jim Henson Exhibition” at the Museum of Moving Image, the creator of the Muppets and other puppets is the star of the show.
  9. At Bard College, a history-rich cache of new art from the Middle East.
  10. The photographer Peter Duke is on a mission to make reactionaries look glamorous.
