The Frick Collection presented an exhibition of bronze statuettes by or related to Severo Calzetta, called Severo da Ravenna, an important but little-known Italian sculptor of the early sixteenth century. Complementing the five bronzes in The Frick Collection attributed to Severo or his workshop were loans from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and two New York private collections. The only known bronze bearing the sculptor's signature and a number of related but quite distinct versions of his original models were included.

Following the previous summer's exhibition devoted to bronzes by Severo Calzetta, this was the second exhibition to focus on lesser-known aspects of The Frick Collection — in this case eleven eighteenth and early nineteenth-century objects in silver or silver-gilt by Paul De Lamerie, William Pitts, Paul Storr, Benjamin and James Smith, and the London monogrammist I S. Complementing these pieces were twenty-eight borrowed works by the same artisans and their contemporary silversmiths Daniel Garnier, Pierre Platel, William Lukin and Nicholas Sprimont.
