Sixteenth-Century Limoges Enamels
in The Frick Collection
Monday, April 13, 2 to 3:30 p.m.
In 1916, Henry Clay Frick transformed his office into a gallery to display his collection of Limoges enamels, which he had recently purchased from the estate of J. P. Morgan. These brilliantly colored objects constitute one of the most distinguished collections of its kind, representing most of the major artists and characteristic forms. Drawing on research for his forthcoming book, Limoges Enamels at The Frick Collection, Director Ian Wardropper discusses some of the highlights of this spectacular group. Tickets are $100 ($90 for members).
