The Gregory Gift

Paul Holberton Publishing

Offres

Presenting for the first time the Alexis Gregory Gift to The Frick Collection, this
exquisite publication provides illuminating insights into Gregory’s magnificently
eclectic collection, cataloging his fine and decorative works of art in detail.
Twenty-eight works of art bequeathed to the Frick by Alexis Gregory range from Limoges
enamels to Saint-Porchaire ware to pastels by the Venetian painter Rosalba Carriera.
This remarkable gift has introduced new types of objects to the Frick: works in ivory and
rhinoceros horn are the first of their kind to be held in the collection.
Gregory’s gift includes fifteen Limoges enamels, one of them produced in the
workshop of Suzanne de Court, the only woman known to have led an enamel workshop
in Limoges. Also part of the gift are a gilt-bronze sculpture, an ivory hilt, a pomander,
ewers, saltcellars, and two clocks. Many of Gregory’s objects came from such prestigious
owners as the French royal collections and the Rothschilds. Included in the publication
are commentaries on each gift.
This lavishly illustrated publication accompanies an exhibition that will be on view at
The Frick Collection February 16 through May 14, 2023.
