The Frick’s Center for the History of Collecting announces a new book series with the publication of its first volume, Holland’s Golden Age in America: Collecting the Art of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Hals. This series, entitled The Frick Collection Studies in the History of Collecting, is co-published with the Pennsylvania State University Press, and will ultimately cover a broad range of art collecting, reflecting the Center's reach well beyond the parameters of the Frick's own scope to include topics on modern and non-western art. Comments Inge Reist, Director of the Center, “We aim to encourage new scholarship in this young field of art history through our annual acclaimed symposia and ongoing fellowship program, much of which leads to new publications. Complementing that activity is this series that enables the Center to make its own contribution to the growing bibliography on the history of collecting in America.” This and future volumes are drawn from papers given at the Center’s symposia. Upcoming books from recent events include A Market for Merchant Princes: Collecting Italian Renaissance Painting in America (February 2015), edited by Inge Reist; Going for Baroque: Americans Collect Italian Paintings of the 17th and 18th Centuries, edited by Edgar Peters Bowron; and The Americas Revealed: Collecting Colonial and Modern Latin American Art in the United States, edited by Edward Sullivan.
