Media Alert: The Impressionist Line from Degas to Toulouse-Lautrec: Drawings and Prints from the Clark
In spring 2013, The Frick Collection will present approximately sixty prints and drawings from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, renowned for its rich holdings in nineteenth-century French art. The selection focuses on several artistic visionaries of the nineteenth century, including Courbet, Manet, Monet, Degas, Gauguin, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Nearly half of the sheets in the exhibition were acquired by Sterling and Francine Clark, who were avid collectors of Impressionism, while others have entered the Clark since its opening in 1955. This exhibition at the Frick marks the first time that the Clark's nineteenth-century French works on paper have been the focus of a loan show.
