Masterpieces from the Scottish National Gallery
November 5, 2014, through February 1, 2015
In November the Frick will present ten masterpieces of Italian, Spanish, French, Scottish, and English painting from the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, among them a Botticelli never before on public view in the United States and John Singer Sargent’s iconic Lady Agnew of Lochnaw. The museum, one of the finest in the world, is distinguished for its holdings of works by the greatest masters of Western art and for its comprehensive collection of Scottish art. The upcoming exhibition will feature paintings spanning the fourteenth to the nineteenth centuries that invite illuminating comparisons to the Frick’s permanent collection. Masterpieces from the Scottish National Gallery, which will also include works by Constable, El Greco, Gainsborough, Raeburn, Ramsay, Reynolds, Velázquez, and Watteau, will travel in extended form to the de Young, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas (see page 8 for further information on this tour).
