On Thursday, March 29, at 6 pm, the Frick’s Center for the History of Collecting is set to host an event to celebrate the recent publication of several books and exhibits on Spanish and Latin American topics.
Among them are two books that evolved from symposia organized by the Center: El Greco Comes to America: The Discovery of a Modern Old Master and The Americas Revealed: Collecting Colonial and Modern Latin American Art in the United States.
The museum presented two acclaimed shows on seventeenth-century masters for which catalogues were produced: Zurbarán’s Jacob and His Twelve Sons: Paintings from Auckland Castle (on view through April 22) and last fall, Murillo: The Self Portraits (currently on view at London’s National Gallery).
The reception will offer an opportunity to view the Zurbarán exhibition, and includes remarks by authors, José Luis Colomer, Director of the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica, Madrid and Director of the Center for Spain in America; Susan Grace Galassi, Senior Curator, The Frick Collection; Xavier F. Salomon, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, The Frick Collection; and Edward J. Sullivan, the Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art, New York University.
The event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Click here to register.
The Frick Collection is located at 1 E 70th St, New York.
