“Moroni never achieved the fame of contemporaries like Titian or Bronzino… But he innovated portraiture in spectacular ways, experimenting with formats, genres, and ways to make a portrait seem to come alive.” —Aimee Ng

Sandwiched between gargantuan art fairs and the vibrant, overwhelming crush that is contemporary art these days, The Frick Collection always blesses us with a breath of fresh air in its exhibitions and galleries. This spring, that takes the form of the exhibition Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture, on now through June 2, 2019. This rare exhibition – the first to feature Moroni in North America – highlights the portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/24–1579/80), investigating the unique, even revolutionary, aspects that made his portraits stand out. The exhibition includes 20 of the artist’s portraits together with a selection of objects — jewelry, textiles, armor, and other items — that “evoke the material world of the artist and his sitters, and reveal his inventiveness in translating it into paint.”

In this video, the Frick’s Associate Curator Aimee Ng introduces us to this extraordinary exhibition.
