The Frick Collection: "European Painting Exhibition for 2010"

  The Frick Museum is showing European paintings from Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. One of the major collections of Old Master pictures in the world, particularly of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This is definitely on my list on shows I want to see this month.
  The featured works are; Rembrandt van Rijn’s Girl at a Window, 1645; Sir Anthony Van Dyck’s Samson and Delilah, c. 1619–20; Thomas Gainsborough’s Linley Sisters, 1771–1772; Sir Peter Lely’s Nymphs by a Fountain, c. 1650; Canaletto’s Old Walton Bridge, 1754; Gerrit Dou’s Woman Playing a Clavichord, c. 1665; Antoine Watteau’s Les Plaisirs du bal, c. 1717; Bartolom√© Esteban Murillo’s Flower Girl, c. 1665; and Nicolas Poussin’s Nurture of Jupiter, c. 1636–37.
