Lock, Stock and Barrel: Norton Simon’s Purchase of Duveen Brothers Gallery

"Lock, Stock and Barrel: Norton Simon’s Purchase of Duveen Brothers Gallery" examines one of Norton Simon’s most memorable acquisitions—the purchase of the century-old, esteemed art dealership, the Duveen Brothers Gallery. Featuring more than 130 works from the Museum’s collection, along with several loans, the exhibition sheds light on Simon’s business strategies and his dramatic evolution as an art collector that ultimately brought to Pasadena works by Vincenzo Catena, Jusepe de Ribera, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Giorgione and others.
