Rembrandt and His School: Masterworks from the Frick and Lugt Collections



Rembrandt and His School: Masterworks from the Frick and Lugt Collections
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  The Frick Collection  •  Ongoing
 
Of the five paintings from the Frick's permanent collection, four were acquired by Henry Clay Frick (18491919) between 1899 and 1919, and the fifth by the trustees in 1943 from the collection of J. Pierpont Morgan. Three of these works are unquestionable masterpieces by the artist Nicolaes Ruts (1631), The Polish Rider (c. 1655), and the Self-Portrait (1658). Two of the paintings Portrait of a Young Artist and Old Woman with a Book were acquired by Frick as Rembrandts but are today attributed to artists in his entourage. This will be the first time that all five paintings have been united in a monographic display. A selection of etchings and drawings by Rembrandt acquired by Henry Clay Frick at the end of his life are featured.

A loan exhibition of 66 works on paper by Rembrandt and his school from the collection of Frits Lugt, now housed in the Fondation Custodia, Paris, are also on display. Eighteen drawings by the artist as well as a group of his prints will be accompanied by 36 master drawings by his most prominent pupils and students, including Ferdinand Bol, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout, Carel Fabritius, Govaert Flinck, Jan Lievens, and Nicolaes Maes.
