The Metropolitan Museum of Art's assistant curator for European Paintings Adam Eaker has shared news that the museum has acquired Hendrick ter Brugghen's Roman Charity. The work, signed and dated 1623, has recently been conserved by the museum and will go on display later this summer. It was acquired with the assistance of various funds including those from the late Jayne Wrightsman.
