The Frick Collection, New York and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Collaborate on Touring Exhibition

Willem van Tetrode (c. 1525–1580) Bronze Sculptures of the Renaissance, June 24 through September 7, 2003

The first exhibition devoted to one of the most innovative Dutch sculptors of the midsixteenth century—who brought the tradition of the classically inspired Italian Renaissance bronze to the Netherlands—comes to The Frick Collection this summer. During almost twenty years in Italy, Willem van Tetrode (c. 1525–1580) studied and restored antique marble sculpture and worked for such celebrated artists as Benvenuto Cellini (1500–1571). From these experiences, he created expressive small bronzes showing the muscular male nude in poised or violent motion.
