Stephen Scher — a collector, scholar, and curator — has assembled the finest private collection of portrait medals in the world, part of which he and his wife, Janie Woo Scher, have given to The Frick Collection (and which is the focus of the upcoming exhibition, The Pursuit of Immortality). This lecture tells the story behind building a collection of this stature — a tale of motivation, temptations, mistakes, and successes — as well as touching upon the development of the medal and its varied messages.
