Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture
February 21, 2019 to June 2, 2019

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture will be the first major exhibition in the United States to focus on the portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/24–1579/80), an essential figure in the northern Italian tradition of naturalistic painting. The Frick will present about twenty of the artist’s most arresting portraits together with a selection of complementary objects — jewelry, textiles, armor, and other luxury items — that evoke the material world of the artist and his sitters and reveal his inventiveness in translating it into paint.

The Charterhouse of Bruges: Jan van Eyck, Petrus Christus, and Jan Vos

For the first time in twenty-four years and only the second time in their history, two masterpieces of early Netherlandish painting commissioned by the Carthusian monk Jan Vos are reunited. These works, The Frick Collection’s Virgin and Child with St. Barbara, St. Elizabeth, and Jan Vos, commissioned from Jan van Eyck and The Virgin and Child with St. Barbara and Jan Vos, painted by Petrus Christus, are shown with a selection of objects that place them in the rich monastic context for which they were created.
