"Anne Vallayer-Coster: Painter to the Court of Marie-Antoinette"
2003-01-22 until 2003-03-23
Frick Collection
New York, NY, USA

This is the first retrospective exhibition on the eighteenth-century French still-life painter Anne Vallayer-Coster (1744–1818), a highly regarded artist who was one of the favorite painters of Marie-Antoinette. As was the case with many artists whose reputations declined following the French Revolution, the work of Vallayer-Coster has until quite recently been something of a well-kept secret, admired by specialists of the period but largely unknown to the general public.

Through a selection of thirty-five of her paintings, the exhibition demonstrates Vallayer-Coster’s development as one of the foremost still-life artists of her generation. Accompanying the exhibition is the first catalogue in full color to present the majority of Vallayer-Coster’s known oeuvre.

Anne Vallayer-Coster: Painter to the Court of Marie-Antoinette is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art, and curated by Eik Kahng, formerly with the Dallas Museum of Art and currently the associate curator of 18th- and 19th-century art at the Walters Art Museum. The exhibition made its debut this summer at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and was on view this fall at the Dallas Museum of Art. It opens in late January at The Frick Collection, the third North American venue (subsequently, the exhibition travels to the Centre de La Vieille Charité in Marseille, France).

Chief Curator Colin B. Bailey is coordinating the New York presentation of this exhibition, which is made possible through the generous support of the Fellows of The Frick Collection.
