Animals in Combat: Giovanni Francesco Susini's Lion Attacking a Horse

February 15, 2005 to May 1, 2005

This installation celebrated Walter A. and Vera Eberstadt's notable gift of Giovanni Francesco Susini's Lion Attacking a Horse and Leopard Attacking a Bull to The Frick Collection in 2002. The drawings, prints, books, and objects on display illustrated the subject of combating animals, as it was handed down from classical antiquity and transformed in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century art.
