On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, The Frick Collection presented an unprecedented loan exhibition of seventeen pictures, spanning the period from the Renaissance to the late eighteenth century. Included were Fra Angelico's Saint James Freeing Hermogenes, Caravaggio's The Cardsharps, George de La Tour's Cheat with the Ace of Clubs, Poussin's early Venus and Adonis, and Goya's Portrait of the Matador Pedro Romero, as well a dozen masterpieces by Rubens, Ruisdael, Saenredam, Murillo, Chardin, Tiepolo, and other European artists. These works provided the New York public with an opportunity to see some of the finest acquisitions of European paintings made in recent years brought together in the same building with our outstanding European old masters collected during the first decades of the twentieth century.
