  • Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection

    October 10, 2018 to September 22, 2019

    Beginning this fall, an exhibition in the Portico Gallery will present a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form.

  • Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome

    October 31, 2018 to January 20, 2019

    Of the many artists who flourished in Rome during the eighteenth century, the silversmith Luigi Valadier (1726–1785) was particularly admired by popes, royalty, and aristocrats across Europe. Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome, curated by Alvar González-Palacios, will bring together more than sixty extraordinary works by the renowned silversmith in celebration of his unsurpassed technical expertise and avant-garde aesthetic.

  • 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.

  • Edmund de Waal Installation

    May 30, 2019 to November 10, 2019
    Next year, The Frick Collection will present a temporary installation of sculptures by acclaimed author and ceramist Edmund de Waal. Site-specific works made of porcelain, steel, gold, marble, and glass will be displayed in the museum's main galleries alongside works from the permanent collection.
