Dick Johnson forwarded this announcement from The Frick Collection in New York. Thanks!
Frick Collection is pleased to offer The Romantic Medallion: Collecting David d’Angers’s Portraits, a seminar led by Emerson Bowyer, guest curator, and Jonathan Kagan, collector, on Tuesday, October 29, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. We hope you will consider joining us for what promises to be a riveting exploration of portrait medallions from Mr. Kagan’s private collection and the Frick’s special exhibition, David d’Angers: Making the Modern Monument.
David d’Angers is often credited with the nineteenth-century revival of cast bronze portrait medallions. By the end of his life, the sculptor had created an immensely popular portable pantheon of some five hundred medallions depicting the celebrities of his day, from Géricault and Goethe to George Sand and Paganini. This seminar will introduce these objects and discuss their creation, reproduction, and distribution. It will also offer the rare opportunity to examine a group of medallions from a New York private collection and to consider issues related to connoisseurship and collecting.
To reserve a space in this seminar, please visit our Web site, e-mail email@example.com, or call 212-547-0704.
We hope to see you at the Frick!
