The Frick Collection presented an exhibition devoted to Vincennes and Sévres porcelain of the second half of the eighteenth century. Focused on the small but rich group of French porcelains in The Frick Collection, which had never before been shown in its entirety, the exhibition included comparable examples from American and European public and private collections, original design drawings, a plaster model for a vase, prints used as subjects by porcelain painters, and four pieces of furniture mounted with Sévres plaques. A special feature of the exhibition was the display of three of the porcelains Ingres represented in The Frick Collection’s portrait of the Comtesse d’Haussonville; the pieces were lent by one of the subject's descendants.
