MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS with Ines Powell: ZUBARAN MASTERPIECES ON LOAN FROM AUCKLAND CASTLE
2:00 PM

Exhibition at the Frick Collection, New York, January 31, 2018 to April 22, 2018

The Frick Collection is organizing an exhibition of Francisco de Zurbarán’s series, Jacob and His Twelve Sons. The ambitious series of thirteen life-size paintings depicts the Old Testament figures. On loan from Auckland Castle, in England, the works by the Spanish Golden Age master Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664) have never traveled outside Europe.  Zurbarán made the series between 1640 and 1644, based on the Book of Genesis story in which Jacob on his deathbed, called together his 12 sons, who would become the founders of the 12 tribes of Israel.  The series was originally intended to travel, as Catholic propaganda, to the New World where it was commonly believed that indigenous people such as the Aztecs were a lost tribe of Israel. For unknown reasons, the series did not make it to the Americas.   One account states that English pirates stole the paintings.  By 1756, the series was in the possession of the prince-bishop of Durham, Richard Trevor, who resided in Auckland Castle. Bishop Trevor interpreted the subject of the series as a symbols of religious tolerance, a cause that he favored and promoted, at a time when in England, non-Anglican religious groups were treated with intolerance and contempt.

As a young girl, Anna Kerrigan accompanies her father to visit Dexter Styles, a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family. She is mesmerized by Mr. Styles, his home, and the beach that is his backyard. Years later, her family has changed and the country is at war. Anna works at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where women hold most of the jobs that once belonged to men. One evening at a nightclub she meets Dexter Styles again and begins to unravel the complexity of her father's life.
