On the occasion of the Frick’s exhibition of five Old Master paintings from the Norton Simon Museum, Carol Togneri focused on Simon’s acquisitive habits, his wide-ranging tastes in art, and the ambition that drove him to amass a collection of masterpieces. This lecture was delivered on February 11, 2009, in conjunction with Masterpieces of European Painting from the Norton Simon Museum, on view at The Frick Collection from February 10 through May 10, 2009.
