Oval Room

Sir Frederic Leighton’s Flaming June

June 9, 2015 to September 6, 2015

Next summer, The Frick Collection will present Sir Frederic Leighton’s celebrated painting Flaming June from the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico. This monumental image of a sleeping woman in a brilliant orange gown is a masterpiece of British painting that has not been seen by New York City audiences in twenty years. Indeed, as a collection highlight of its home institution, the work is seldom lent. The work will be installed on a wall in the center of the Oval Room, surrounded by the Frick’s four full-length portraits by James McNeill Whistler, an artist who was part of Leighton’s London circle.
