Highly appreciated by French sculptors from the 16th century onwards, bronze featured prominently down through the history of French sculpture: in portraits, tomb decoration, statuettes for connoisseurs, royal and public monuments, garden statuary, scale models…

Major artists working between the 16th and 18th century – Primaticcio, Goujon, Pilon, Prieur, Lorrain, Anguier, Girardon, Puget, Pigalle, Houdon – appear in this tribute to French bronzes, much lesser known than their Italian or German counterparts.

Tom and Janine Hill started to collect in the early 1990s, and decided at the outset to concentrate on two main areas – on the one hand on Renaissance and baroque bronzes, and on the other on eight post-war painters. In consequence, a visit to their New York apartment – in which the two strands are dramatically but at the same time brilliantly juxtaposed – is a very singular experience, which is in part replicated at the Frick by virtue of the inclusion of a few paintings by the likes of Cy Twombly and Ed Ruscha.

The overall effect of the display is considerably enhanced by the fact that the bronzes are seen in the round and are not displayed in vitrines, which means that visitors are able to do everything except pick them up and turn them in their hands. The result is an unforgettably direct experience of an absolutely outstanding collection.

‘Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Hill Collection’ is at the Frick Collection , New York, until 15 June.
