RICCIO AT THE FRICK
by N.F. Karlins
You still have time to see the most provocative show of the season, an exhibition that rouses not by being sensational, but rather by deeply questioning and reexamining the past. The Frick Collection is presenting "Andrea Riccio: Renaissance Master of Bronze," exploring this forgotten 16th-century master’s small bronze figures, reliefs, and luxury decorative objects. He’s probably the only major Renaissance artist not to have had a solo exhibition before now. The show is on view Oct. 15, 2008-Jan. 18, 2009.
