Summer is in full swing! We are channeling Édouard Manet's "Sur la Plage," housed at the Musée d'Orsay and reproduced in the , the founding collection of the Frick Art Reference Library.

Manet painted this shore scene during a trip to Berck-sur-Mer, on the northern coast of France. His wife and brother served as models, and close examination has revealed grains of sand embedded in the paint layers—a testament to the artist’s process and the timeless experience of bringing sand home from the beach. 🐚

In 's prints, he evokes an incredible amount of psychological depth using the most delicate linework.

This scene is a panoramic reimagining of an iconic Christian subject that was ubiquitous in early modern European art. Through stark contrasts of light and dark, the print communicates a strong sense of mood and emotion, and the crowd of ordinary figures commands almost as much attention as the sacred protagonist.

Today we are celebrating James McNeill , who was in 1834.

This painting, exhibited in London in 1892, was one of several seascapes Whistler painted more than twenty-five years prior, during a visit to Valparaíso, Chile. The influence of Japanese prints is apparent in the high horizon line, the decorative arrangement of bamboo stalks, and the butterfly monogram at the bottom right, which was of the artist's own design.

James McNeill Whistler (American, 1834–1903), Symphony in Grey and Green: The Ocean, 1866. Oil on canvas, 31 3/4 x 40 1/8 in. (80.6 x 101.9 cm). The Frick Collection, New York

Little is known about Martial Reymond, who signed this large enamel dish. 🍽 Son of Limoges enamelist Jean Reymond, he followed his father's techniques to create decorative pieces in the style of the second half of the sixteenth century. Particularly representative of this artistic period is the com­bination of a mythological scene—here, the god Apollo is shown surrounded by muses playing music—with fanciful figures and fantastic animals, known as grotesques.

Did you know? Only thirty-four paintings are generally accepted to be by Johannes 's hand, and the Frick has three 🎨

Vermeer produced a small number of mythological and biblical scenes and cityscapes, but he is most celebrated for genre scenes of women and men in domestic settings. This type of imagery, popular in seventeenth-century Dutch art, is represented in our three canvases: "Officer and Laughing Girl," "Mistress and Maid," and "Girl Interrupted at Her Music."

In honor of the last week of , we're highlighting "Living Histories: Q***r Views and Old Masters," a year-long project that took place at Frick Madison and featured new works by four New York–based artists: Doron Langberg, Salman Toor, Jenna Gribbon, and Toyin Ojih Odutola.

Inspired by our temporary residency in the Breuer building, which prompted new perspectives on the Frick's permanent collection, "Living Histories" presented four paintings created in response to specific historical works, with particular emphasis on issues of gender and q***r identity typically excluded from narratives of early modern European art.

Today, on , we commemorate the freedom of the last enslaved African Americans in the United States. The holiday marks the anniversary of the emancipation order issued in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, signaling the official end of slavery in this country.

In honor of the day, we are sharing three new additions to the Frick Art Reference Library's collection, all published within the past year. These books celebrate Black artists and histories, as part of the library's ongoing efforts to diversify and expand its holdings.

📚 "William Edmondson: A Monumental Vision," edited by James Claiborne and Nancy Ireson, reclaims Edmondson's artistic legacy by exploring the major influences on his life and work.
📚 "Rediscovering Black Portraiture," by Peter Brathwaite, examines how changing identities within the African diaspora manifested themselves in portraits of Black subjects in Western art.
📚 "Pieces of Freedom: The Emancipation Sculptures of Edmonia Lewis and Meta Warrick Fuller," by Lee Ann Timreck, illustrates ways in which sculptures by these two nineteenth-century artists reflect the early years of Black freedom.
