Holy Women at the Sepulchre on loan at the Frick

The Frick collection is displaying Zurbaran's 1633 "Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose" on loan from the Norton Simon museum in Pasadena, Ca. I'm off to see it this weekend. It's connections to Mary are explored here. Also on loan from the same Museum is Peter Paul Rubens, "The Holy Women at the Sepulchre." On the left we see a Magdalene figure with bare feet.

On Wednesday March 25th from 6-7pm at the Frick, a lecture is being given by Peter C. Sutton, The Susan E. Lynch Executive Director, Bruce Museum, Greenwich, "'Why seek ye the living among the dead?' Peter Paul Rubens's The Holy Women at the Sepulchre from the Norton Simon Museum." The lecture is free with Museum admission.
