Timelapse: Nicolas Party and Rosalba Carriera
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Frick Madison’s new site-specific mural by Nicolas Party.
To create the mural, the artist took inspiration from the history of pastels and from the Frick’s Portrait of a Man in Pilgrim’s Costume by Rosalba Carriera.
The installation places Rosalba’s portrait—along with two by Party—against three walls depicting swathes of drapery, created after eighteenth-century works by artists Jean-Étienne Liotard and Maurice-Quentin de La Tour. The mural is on view through March 3, 2024.
