Cocktails with a Curator: Rosalba Carriera's Portraits

In this week’s “Cocktails with a Curator,” Deputy Director and 
Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon celebrates 
Women’s History Month by examining two exquisite pastels 
by Rosalba Carriera that recently entered the collection 
through a bequest from Alexis Gregory and are on view 
for the first time on the third floor of Frick Madison. 
Celebrated for her technically innovative pastel portraits, 
Rosalba was one of the most famous artists of 18th-century Italy, 
particularly remarkable given the male-dominated society 
in which she lived. 

This week’s complementary cocktail is the Vesper Martini.
