Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals
This summer, The Frick Collection celebrates the gift of the Scher Collection (the largest acquisition in the collection’s history) with this special exhibition, featuring more than 120 medals along with sculptures and works on paper from the Frick’s own holdings. Exploring medals as essential to the history of portraiture in Western art — produced by artists who were also well-known painters, sculptors, and printmakers — the exhibition honours portrait medals as a triumph of sculptural production on a small scale. Find out more about the ‘Pursuit of Immortality’ exhibition from the Frick Collection’s website.
