Open through January 19, 2014
For the first time in the institution’s history, the Frick has opened an additional Museum Shop space within the building to accompany a special exhibition. Here, visitors will find a rich array of gift items inspired by works in the highly attended fall and winter show Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis. These gifts include mugs, tote bags, t-shirts, watches, calendars, and wooden puzzles. Among the related stationary items are note cards, notebooks, and sketch pads. At the heart of the exhibition is Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, and interest in seeing this work―which has not been shown in New York City in almost thirty years―has resulted in an offering of pearl-related gifts as well as a showcase of cultured and natural pearl jewelry.
