At the Frick Collection: ‘Girl With the Pearl Earring’ on Display Now

by Rachel Baker on December 10, 2013

If you live in or around NYC, you should seriously take a trip over to the Frick Collection. Once there, take a gander at the ‘Girl with the Pearl Earring’ and some of the other Dutch masterpieces that are on display right now, until January 19, 2014.

The Yayoi Kusama exhibit isn’t the only show in New York that people are willing to wait in long, cold lines to experience. At the Frick Collection on the Upper East Side, droves of visitors are turning out daily to see, Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting From the Mauritshuis.

The collection, normally based at the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague, has been on a world tour while the prominent Dutch museum it calls home undergoes renovations. The Frick Collection is the final American stop for the exhibit, which includes fifteen works from the Dutch Golden Age, some of which have not travelled in decades.
