Slave to the Renaissance Feminine at The Frick

Parmigianino was a breath of fresh air in the Renaissance, known particularly for his portraiture, sometimes described as Raphaelesque. The Frick's exhibit "The Poetry of Parmigianino’s Schiava Turca" is a reflection on the interpretation of women in the Renaissance and is highlighted by a particularly captivating portrait of a nominally Turkish slave woman painted by Parmigianino. The museum offers a reflection on the identity of the sitter and complements the work with a collection of other female portraits of same period.
