The Frick Collection to Serve as Final Venue for MASTERPIECES OF DUTCH PAINTING

This fall and winter, The Frick Collection will be the final venue of an American tour of paintings from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague. This prestigious Dutch museum, which has not lent a large body of works from its holdings in nearly thirty years, is undergoing an extensive two-year renovation that makes this opportunity possible. VERMEER, REMBRANDT, AND HALS: MASTERPIECES OF DUTCH PAINTING FROM MAURITSHUIS will be on view in New York from October 22, 2013, through January 19, 2014. Among the paintings featured are the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer and The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius, neither of which will have been seen by American audiences in ten years. The exhibition in New York-- which will be accompanied by a catalogue and a series of public programs and select evening hours-- is coordinated by Margaret Iacono, Assistant Curator at the Frick. The works were selected by Edwin Buijsen, Head of Collections at the Mauritshuis and former Frick Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Colin B. Bailey.

Continuing in the Frick's tradition of presenting masterpieces from acclaimed museums not easily accessible to the New York public, this exhibition follows four acclaimed shows of similar size that drew, respectively, upon works from the Toledo Museum of Art (2002), the Cleveland Museum of Art (2006), the Norton Simon Museum (2009), and Dulwich Picture Gallery (2010). Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earringwill have pride of place as the sole work on view in the Frick's Oval Room, with the other fourteen paintings being shown together in the large East Gallery. The fifteen loans areprimarily by artists collected by founder Henry Clay Frick, such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Hals, and van Ruisdael; the selection is complementary, however, in its inclusion of work by Steen and Fabritius as well as the addition of two fine still lifes, a genre less well-represented at the Frick.
