THE FRICK COLLECTION
On Sunday, December 13, 2015 we will be visiting The Frick Collection to view their current exhibition, Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action. This is a widely acclaimed exhibition, and for those of us who love Renaissance art, it is yet another good reason to visit this timeless, elegant art institution.
Before our visit, members are invited to join me for brunch at Orsay Restaurant, a few blocks away on Lexington Avenue. More information is below.

ANDREA DEL SARTO: The Renaissance Workshop in Action
October 7, 2015 – January 10, 2016
From about 1515 until his death, Andrea del Sarto (1486–1530) ran the most successful and productive workshop in Florence, not only leaving his native city richly decorated with his art but also greatly influencing the art produced in the remainder of the century. By 1700, however, Andrea’s reputation had declined, not to be revived until the publication of monographs by Sydney Freedberg and John Shearman in 1963 and 1965, respectively. Although his oeuvre represents the essence of Florentine High Renaissance creativity and the magisterial beauty of his drawings is well known to scholars and collectors, he is less known to the general public. This is the first major monographic exhibition on this artist ever to be presented in the United States (and the first in nearly thirty years shown anywhere).
Special Exhibitions and the Acoustiguide audio guide are included in this price, payable at admissions:
Adults $20, Seniors (65 and over): $15. Admission is always free for Members.
