This spring, The Frick Collection is pleased to collaborate with Puerto Rico's Museo de Arte de Ponce on an upcoming exhibition. Starting March 17 and running through August 6, 2018, Museo de Arte de Ponce presents Pequeños tesoros de la Frick Collection (Small Treasures from The Frick Collection). The intimate show of ten works, mostly on paper, includes an engraving, a watercolor, four drawings and four oil sketches. They cover four centuries of artistic production, from Albrecht Dürer's 1514 engraving, Melencolia I, (below)
to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot's 1843 oil sketch, The Arch of Constantine and the Forum, Rome.
Additional artists represented in the show include Claude Lorrain, John Constable, Francisco Goya, and Eugène Delacroix.
