Frick Collection Welcomes Public to View Newly Reopened and Refurbished Fragonard Room
Visitors may now enjoy one of The Frick Collection’s most remarkable and signature galleries, the Fragonard Room, which has undergone its first major relighting and refurbishment in sixty years. This initiative required the temporary closure of the room in June, during which time the principal panels of his masterpiece series The Progress of Love were placed on view in the East Gallery. The panels were recently reinstalled in the gallery bearing the artist’s name, which reopened on Tuesday, October 23, 2007. The paintings are on display with important decorative art objects from the collection, all of which will benefit greatly from the new system of illumination.
