The Frick Collection in New York City has announced that Apollo magazine has named the museum’s recent presentation of the work of Luigi Valadier the Exhibition of the Year.
Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome, which closed in January 2019, was the first exhibition in the US devoted to showcasing this influential Italian decorative artist. With an extraordinary eye for detail, Valadier designed and crafted whimsical, avant-garde, and elegant pieces for patrons across Europe. The acclaimed exhibition was accompanied by the first substantial monograph published on the artist.
Inspired by the New York showing, an exhibition about Valadier is on view in Rome through February 2, 2020, at the Galleria Borghese.
