Mantegna to Matisse: Master Drawings from the Courtauld Gallery

October 2, 2012 to January 27, 2013













From the website:

In keeping with its tradition of exhibiting masterworks from collections outside of New York, the Frick will present fifty-eight drawings from The Courtauld Gallery, London. This exhibition marks the first time that so many of the principal drawings in The Courtauld's renowned collection — one of Britain's most important — have been made available for loan. The prized sheets represent a survey of the extraordinary draftsmanship of Italian, Dutch, Flemish, German, Spanish, British, and French artists active between the late Middle Ages and the early twentieth century.

The survey features works executed in a range of drawing techniques and styles and for a variety of purposes, including preliminary sketches, practice studies, aide-mémoires, designs for other artworks, and finished pictures meant to be appreciated as independent works of art.

Among the artists in the Frick's exhibition will be Andrea Mantegna, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Peter Paul Rubens, Jusepe de Ribera, Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, Jean-Antoine Watteau, Charles-Joseph Natoire, Thomas Gainsborough, Francisco Goya y Lucientes, Joseph Mallord William Turner, Théodore Géricault, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.

Audiovisual Program

"The Frick Collection: An Introduction" is shown in the Music Room hourly from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays. This twenty-two-minute automated presentation traces the life of Henry Clay Frick and the evolution of his collection. For more information, see Audiovisual Introduction.


We will also spend time viewing the Frick’s permanent collection~










The Frick Collection includes masterpieces of European painting, major works of sculpture (among them one of the finest groups of small bronzes in the world), superb eighteenth-century French furniture and porcelains, Old Master and nineteenth-century works on paper, Limoges enamels, porcelains, and other works of remarkable quality.

    The drawing collection was very impressive, but my favorite part of visiting the Frick is seeing the permanent collection - Titian, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, El Greco and so much more. I enjoyed lunch and conversation after as well - great to see everyone!
