Art in the Frick Collection: Paintings, Sculpture, Decorative Arts

Charles Ryskamp, Author, John Bigelow Taylor, Photographer, Richard Di Liberto, Photographer ABRAMS $60 (208p) ISBN 978-0-8109-1972-3
The Frick Collection is habitually called a gem by its many admirers. It's easy to see why: many of its galleries, while hardly mean, are more intimate than most American museums, and most of its collection is of brilliant quality. For the past 30 or so years, the collection has been catalogued in eight volumes of The Frick Collection: An Illustrated Catalogue (the ninth and final volume is in preparation). In Art in the Frick Collection, the museum's director, Charles Ryskamp, and others draw on this immense work to present over 140 of the museum's greatest paintings, sculpture and decorative arts. One famous work follows another, including Giovanni Bellini's St. Francis in the Desert, Hans Holbein's St. Thomas More, Rembrandt's The Polish Rider, Vermeer's Officer and Laughing Girl and Ingres's Comtesse D'Haussonville, not to mention sculptures by Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Allesandro Algardi and Jean-Antoine Houdon. Includes 198 illustrations, 178 in color.
