Beautiful, Mysterious "Antea" at the Frick

Friday, March 07, 2008

The beautiful and mysterious "Antea" was painted in the early 1530s by Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola, known as Parmigianino (1503–1540). The painting is considered a masterpiece, but little is known about it – including who Antea was. The exhibit "Parmigianino's Antea: A Beautiful Artifice" is on display at the Frick Collection (1 East 70th Street) through April 27, 2008. Colin Bailey is curator at the Frick.
