Bold physicality at the Frick
A visit to the Frick to see this great canvas close up is very worthwhile, for the remarkable Guido Cagnacci mixed religion, beauty and bodily appeal in a manner more alive and masterly than almost any painter either now or in the past, although he worked in Rome and Vienna four centuries ago, and as an attendee at the press review remarked, “ten years ago no one could show this painting in America”.

Uodate: Experience the museum that is a masterpiece, FREE, 6 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday evening of every month (except January). Enjoy free entrance to the galleries, programs, sketching, and events. (Children under 10 will not be admitted.) For more information, visit frick.org/firstfridays.
