The Frick Collection presented an exhibition of sixteenth-century paintings, drawings, and prints, showing a recently acquired Bruegel panel, The Three Soldiers, together with drawings by Altdorfer and Deutsch depicting the same type of colorful mercenary soldiers, called landsknechte. Drawings by Dürer, Rubens, and Titian were also displayed.
As part of a series of exhibitions of drawings and prints, The Frick Collection held this one devoted to the etchings of Charles Meryon (1821–1868). There are fourteen prints by Meryon belonging to The Frick Collection, all of which were acquired by Henry Clay Frick between 1916–1917.
As part of a series of exhibitions devoted to drawings and prints in its collection, The Frick Collection presented one focused on the work of James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834–1903), including three pastels and eight etchings. In addition, four paintings by this artist were on view in the galleries. All twelve etchings exhibited belong to the "Venice Set," commissioned by the London Fine Art Society in 1878.
