  • Divine Encounter: Rembrandt’s Abraham and the Angels

    May 30, 2017 to August 20, 2017

    On loan from a private collection, Rembrandt's Abraham Entertaining the Angels of 1646 is the centerpiece of a small exhibition dedicated to the artist's depictions of Abraham and his various encounters with God and his angels, as recounted in the book of Genesis. In the painting and in the other works included in the show — a tightly focused selection of prints and drawings and a single copper plate — Rembrandt explored, in different media, the nature of divine presence and the ways it was perceived.

  • Fired by Passion: Masterpieces of Du Paquier Porcelain from the Sullivan Collection

    June 8, 2017 to August 12, 2018

    This year-long installation in the Portico Gallery was inspired by the generous gift of fourteen pieces of Du Paquier porcelain given to the Frick in 2016 by Paul Sullivan and Trustee Melinda Martin Sullivan. Although in operation for only twenty-five years, the Du Paquier manufactory left an impressive body of inventive and often whimsical work, forging a distinct identity in the history of European porcelain production. The exhibition features about forty tureens, drinking vessels, platters, and other objects produced by Du Paquier between 1720 and 1740.

  • Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored

    October 24, 2017 to March 11, 2018

    This fall, The Frick Collection will present Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored, a focused exhibition, organized by Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon, on two recently conserved and rarely seen paintings by the celebrated artist Paolo Veronese (1528–1588), Saint Jerome in the Wilderness and Saint Peter Visiting Saint Agatha in Prison. While the paintings are known to scholars, their remote location in a church in Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice, has made them difficult to study. The exhibition will provide a unique opportunity for an international audience to discover these two masterpieces in New York.

  • Murillo: The Self-Portraits

    October 31, 2017 to February 4, 2018

    Bartolomé Estebán Murillo was one of the finest painters of the Spanish Golden Age; this exhibition brings together the only two known self portraits by him, one in the Frick Collection, and one in the National Gallery, London, along with a small selection of additional works by the artist.

  • Zurbarán Masterpieces on Loan from Auckland Castle

    January 31, 2018 to April 22, 2018

    In conjunction with the Meadows Museum, Dallas, and the Auckland Castle Trust, County Durham, England, The Frick Collection is co-organizing an exhibition of Jacob and His Twelve Sons, an ambitious series of thirteen life-size paintings that depict the Old Testament figures. On loan from Auckland Castle, the works by the Spanish Golden Age master Francisco de Zurbarán have never traveled outside Europe.

  • Canova's George Washington

    May 22, 2018 to September 23, 2018

    Canova’s George Washington examines the history of acclaimed sculptor Antonio Canova's lost masterpiece, a full-length statue of George Washington depicted in ancient Roman garb, drafting his farewell address to the states. The exhibition brings together Canova’s full-sized preparatory plaster model (which has never left Italy), four preparatory sketches for the sculpture, and related engravings and drawings, as well as Thomas Lawrence’s 1816 oil portrait of Canova, which, like the model and several sketches, will be on loan from the Gypsotheca e Museo Antonio Canova in Possagno, Italy, the birthplace of the artist.
