The Frick is pleased to announce their forthcoming lecture “Provenance: Can You Bank On It?” presented at The Frick Collection by Dr. Lynn Rother, Senior Provenance Specialist at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. In the first part of her presentation, Dr. Rother will examine one of the biggest art deals of the Nazi era: the purchase of 4,401 works of art for the Berlin museums by the Prussian Finance Minister. The second section of her lecture will outline the challenges of Nazi-era provenance research.
The Center for the History of Collecting encourages and supports the awareness and study of the formation of fine and decorative arts collections in the United States from Colonial times to the present, as well as in Europe from the Renaissance onward, while asserting the relevance of this subject to art and cultural history.
The Center offers short-term junior fellowships (8–10 weeks) for graduate and pre-doctoral students and senior fellowships (8–10 weeks) for post-doctoral and senior scholars. In addition, the Center offers long- term (4–5 months) Leon Levy Fellowships for senior scholars. In all cases, preference is given to researchers whose projects are particularly appropriate to the resources available at the Frick Art Reference Library.
Two short-term fellowships will be granted for Winter/Spring 2019 (January–June), one to a junior scholar, and one to a senior scholar. One long-term Leon Levy Fellowships (one academic semester) will be granted for Winter/Spring 2019. Application forms for Summer/Fall 2019 fellowships must be e-mailed no later than February 11, 2019.

CIMA – Center for Italian Modern Art, February 12, 2019
CIMA – the Center for Italian Modern Art (NYC) is organizing the conference:
“Methodologies of Exchange: MoMA’s Twentieth-century Italian Art (1949)”.
conference uses the 1949 Museum of Modern Art exhibition
“Twentieth-century Italian Art” as a case study to examine the various
methodologies or approaches taken in recent years to explore the
artistic exchange between the United States and Italy in the twentieth
century. By examining the history of this exhibition and the traveling
exhibitions that it spawned, we will explore the reception of Italian
art and artists in the US, the growth of networks and collaborations
between US dealers and artists, and the role that Italy played in the
idea of art-making among American postwar artists. This particular
subject allows for other questions as well: How did an important
institution like MoMA shape the narrative of American modernism? How did
Italy help Alfred Barr and MoMA rethink a Franco-centric vision of
modern art after the war? How did the American art world deal with the
problematic legacy of Fascist Modernism?
This Study Day will be
held at CIMA in connection with the 107th meeting of the College Art
Association and the 70th anniversary of the MoMA exhibition.
