Parmigianino's Antea: A Beautiful Artifice, January 29, 2008, now extended through May 1, 2008

Resize Text

This winter and spring Parmigianino’s hauntingly beautiful portrait of a young woman known as Antea (c.1531–34) will be on view in the United States for the first time in more than twenty years. Generously lent to The Frick Collection by the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, this painting is one of the most important portraits of the Italian Renaissance. Like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Parmigianino’s Antea is a consummate example of a portrait with compelling psychological presence.
