On October 20, 2014, The Frick Collection hosted its annual Autumn Dinner. The black-tie dinner honored Barbara Fleischman, an extraordinary philanthropist and collector and a longtime supporter of the Frick. Mrs. Fleischman’s generosity has touched countless cultural institutions in this country, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Archives of American Art, where she established the Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery in memory of her husband.
Mrs. Fleischman has served as a Trustee of the Frick since 2009, during which time she has been a stalwart champion of all aspects of the institution. Her contributions include support for the special exhibitions Masterpieces of European Painting from Dulwich Picture Gallery and Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis, as well as countless programs at the Center for the History of Collecting. In 2011, she gave an important Renaissance drawing to the museum by Domenico Beccafumi in honor of Colin B. Bailey, then the Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator. Mrs. Fleishman has also served on the benefit committee for the Autumn Dinner (2011–13) and on the host committee for the Spring Garden Party (2014).
Champagne for the Autumn Dinner was provided by Louis Roederer and the wine was donated by Domaines Ott and Ladoucette.
