"Intimacy and grandeur seldom go hand-in-hand; they are as unlikely a combination as Old Master virtuosity and street-smart contemporaneity. 'Barkley L. Hendricks: Portraits at the Frick' brings these opposites together in a stunning show of 14 large-scale, admirably proportioned color portraits by the African-American painter. ” — Willard Spiegelman in The Wall Street Journal. The exhibition features Hendricks's painting, Bahsir (Robert Gowens), part of the Nasher Museum's collection.
