These works will be displayed in the museum's main galleries alongside works from the permanent collection.


To coincide with the exhibition, the museum will publish the third volume of its Frick Diptych series, pairing an essay by curator Charlotte Vignon with a text by de Waal. Together they will offer fresh insight into a pair of porcelain candelabra by Pierre Gouthière, the French eighteenth-century chaser and gilder.
