Join Xavier F. Salomon, deputy director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator at the Frick Collection, and Jamie Gabbarelli, Prince Trust Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, as they discuss one of the highlights of the Prints and Drawings collection: Rosalba Carriera’s graceful and seductive pastel portrait, A Young Lady with a Parrot, a work that exemplifies why Carriera was one of the most renowned artists of her time.
