Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Hill Collection
January 28 through June 15, 2014
This winter and spring the Frick will present Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Hill Collection, a distinguished private collection of thirty-three statuettes, sculptures, and a relief. These works represent more than twenty years of avid engagement on the part of Janine and J. Tomilson Hill, collectors who are better known for their interest in post-war painting. The bronzes, which have never before been shown to the public as a group, span the early sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries, from the inception of the genre in Renaissance Italy to its conclusion as a European wide phenomenon during the late Baroque period.
