Starting today, art fans in Southern California will get a chance to see a rare sight: a portrait of Don Pedro, Duque de Osuna, now on display at Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum.

Painted in the late 18th century by Spanish artist Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, it's the first time this work will be publicly displayed on the West Coast. Susan Grace Galassi is the senior curator at the Frick Collection in New York. She joins the show to talk about the importance of this work of art.
