UPCOMING SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS
THE ART OF THE TIMEKEEPER:
MASTERPIECES FROM THE WINTHROP EDEY BEQUEST
November 14, 2001 though February 24, 2002 (please note new end date)
The Art of the Timekeeper: Masterpieces from the Winthrop Edey Bequest will mark the first showing of a significant selection of the important clocks and watches given to The Frick Collection in 1999 by one of the most remarkable twentieth-century collectors of timepieces. An acknowledgment of this generous gift of Winthrop Kellogg Edey (1937-1999), The Art of the Timekeeper will feature thirteen clocks and eight watches ranging in date from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries and revealing the breadth of his passion for collecting in arguably the most fascinating period in the history of timekeeping. Indeed, the featured works will illustrate several significant technical developments that influenced not only the design and appearance of clocks and watches, but also the impact that improved methods of timekeeping had upon the growth of Western civilization. The Frick Collection already possesses numerous timepieces, and the Edey bequest serves greatly to enhance these holdings.
