The Delights of Zurbarán’s Jacob and His Twelve Sons, in NYC for the First Time


All the photos were downloaded from the article.  Being well aware of the policy when I went to see the exhibit my camera stayed in my pocket.

The security guards will ask you to put your camera/cell phone away and refrain from taking pictures or talking on the cell phone. Be polite and Obey Museum rules.

If you are serious about art you can take in the Excellence, beauty and wonder of this Magnificent special exhibition without the need to act like a crazed tourist.

Art is meant to be contemplated, felt, plus thought provoking. Even though it is tempting to want that photo resist the temptation and enjoy being in the moment.  I thoroughly enjoyed viewing this jaw dropping artwork and hope to go back again before the show ends.


The Frick Museum has a Strict


No Pictures Allowed!  If you want keepsakes or souvenirs buy from the Gift Shop!

  1. When I was in New York I went to see the Frick collection. It’s a wonderful place, not only the art but also the building, once of grand statue, now a beautiful secluded house and garden amidst high rises. Zurbarán is great!

    1. It is a wonderful exhibition. My jaw dropped at the scope and magnitude of the paintings. Plus it brings these Bible characters to life.
      Zurbaran really captured the essence of Jacobs Blessings and prophecies over each of his sons. I could have stayed for hours but I had somewhere to go but hopefully to return before the show ends.

  2. Very nice. I know it’s hard not to take pictures. I’m always sad when I can’t take a picture and share with others. I guess they just have to visit themselves. I love art museums. Every artist has a different way of expressing what he or she sees.

    1. As adults we must and need to control our impulses. There are valid reasons why many art museums have No Photography policies. As a museum security guard I’ve seen the stupid Selfie craze get out of hand. Art gets damaged and broken. Visitors get into fights. There is absolutely no reason or need to share every part of your life. I’m hoping that more museums Will adapt a NO PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY!

    1. Thanks. Yes. True. Zurbaran was an amazing and incredible artist. He really made these Bible characters more lifelike and Human. Zurbaran truly captured their individual personalities through the prophecy of their father Jacob.
