The Frick Collection in New York City houses a Bellini painting that can never leave the museum
Painted by Giovanni Bellini around 1480, it was obtained by Henry Clay Frick in 1915 and immediately became one of his favorite pieces, even though religious art was not his cup of tea. Now part of the Frick Collection’s permanent collection, it still sits in the same room as it did when it arrived. Here, Colin B. Bailey, Associate Director, and Peter Jay Sharp, Chief Curator of The Frick Collection, bring this painting of Francis to life in this brief, informative tour.
