Watteau to Degas: French Drawings from the Frits Lugt Collection, October 6, 2009, through January 10, 2010
As its major fall exhibition, the Frick is pleased to present Watteau to Degas: French Drawings from the Frits Lugt Collection, featuring more than sixty works on paper from the holdings of the Fondation Custodia, Paris. On view until January 10, 2010, it includes drawings and watercolors by well-known masters of the French School, including Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Jacques-Louis David, Eugène Delacroix, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and Edgar Degas, as well as by important figures who may be less familiar to the general public. This is the first public exhibition to focus on French eighteenth- and nineteenth-century works on paper from the holdings of Johannes Frederik Lugt (1884–1970), a remarkable self-taught art historian and noted collector.
