Barkley L. Hendricks: Portraits At The Frick

Publication design by Morcos Key

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition at The Frick Collection that juxtaposes the portraiture of the visionary Black American painter Barkley L. Hendricks (1945–2017) with European art from the Renaissance to the modern era.

With a foreword by Thelma Golden and essays by Aimee Ng and Antwaun Sargent, this richly illustrated catalogue investigates Hendricks’s relationship to the Old Masters and to the Frick, which he visited frequently over a period of four decades. Featuring numerous previously unpublished archival photographs, the book also considers Hendricks’s legacy through contributions by eight prominent artists and cultural figures who were influenced by his practice.
