Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze

From October 15, 2008 to January 19, 2009, The Frick Collection presented the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Andrea Riccio (1470–1532), one of the most creative sculptors of the Renaissance. On view were thirty-one autograph works representing every phase of Riccio's career, three bronzes believed to be derived from the artist's lost compositions, and two life-size terracotta sculptures. The catalogue features detailed scholarly entries for each sculpture by specialists including Claudia Kryza-Gersch, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna; Eike D. Schmidt, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Jeremy Warren, The Wallace Collection, London; C. D. Dickerson,  Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth; Philippe Malgouyres, Musée du Louvre; Franca Pellegrini, Museo d'Arte Medievale e Moderna di Padova; and Dimitrios Ziko, Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence.
