You will be transported to Israel in this episode of "Travels with a Curator" by The Frick. Xavier F. Salomon, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator introduces us to the Mount of Quarantine.
As we know it today, is the site of the Monastery of Temptation. It was built on the rocky bluff where Christ was tempted by the devil after fasting in the Judean Desert for forty days and nights. The site is depicted in one of the Frick’s masterpieces, The Temptation of Christ on the Mountain, by Duccio di Buoninsegna.
Thanks to Ian Wardropper, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Director and his team for creating a variety of new content that allows us to share the works of art we love so much at The Frick during this COVID-19 period.
Located in the Henry Clay Frick House on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City, the Frick Collection is a premier museum and research center best known for its distinguished Old Master paintings and outstanding examples of European sculpture and decorative arts.
