The Frick Collection in New York has announced that it has received the promised gift of works on paper from the collection of former trustees Elizabeth and Jean-Marie Eveillard. The gift includes eighteen drawings, five pastels, two prints, and one oil sketch with works by the likes of:

...François Boucher, Edgar Degas, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, Thomas Lawrence, and Jean-François Millet.

The group also introduces to the Frick’s holdings works by artists not yet represented in its primary collecting areas, including Gustave Caillebotte, Maurice Quentin de La Tour (pictured), Jan Lievens, John Singer Sargent, and Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun.

It is expected the works will be displayed in a special exhibition by Autumn 2022.
