Past Exhibitions: 1978

  • English 18th Century Silver in The Frick Collection

    November 13, 1978 to March 18, 1979

    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.

  • Severo Calzetta, Called Severo da Ravenna

    June 22, 1978 to October 8, 1978

    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.
