How Bronze Tells a Story Through Different Angles
The Frick Collection - The Frick Collection
This lecture will present an overview of the Hill Collection exhibition, which combines celebrated masterpieces with new discoveries in the field of bronzes. It will also seek to trace the history of the bronze statuette from the late fifteenth to the eighteenth century in Italy and northern Europe. In so doing, particular emphasis will be placed on the works of preeminent sculptors such as Giambologna, Tetrode, and Adriaen de Vries.
