The Frick Collection is pleased to present a selection of five masterpieces of European painting from the highly acclaimed Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California on view in the Oval Room from February 10 through May 10, 2009. Colin B. Bailey, Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator of The Frick Collection discusses this exhibition.

The Aldrovandi Dog was painted by Guercino around 1625. Although the dog's name has been lost to time, we know that Count Filippo Maria Aldrovandi (1598-1644) owned the white and brindle mastiff because its elaborate leather collar bears the Aldrovandi coat of arms. It is part of the special exhibition Masterpieces of European Painting from the Norton Simon Museum, at The Frick Collection through May 10, 2009.
