The Frick Collection's first show built around a single work of art was a loan exhibition devoted to Ingres's celebrated portrait of the Comtesse d'Haussonville. The exhibition documented the evolution of the portrait, from hesistant sketches to the brilliant final canvas, and the life and character of the subject, including Mme. d'Haussonville's memoirs and her will.
The year 2020 commemorates the one-hundredth anniversary of women’s right to vote across the United States. The Frick is celebrating with a series of videos honoring the stories of women at the museum who made, appeared in, collected, and took care of art in this collection.
