NEW YORK (AP) — A painting by Victorian-era British artist Frederic Leighton is going on view for the first time in New York City.
"Flaming June" depicts a young woman in a gauzy saffron dress.
It'll appear with a small oil sketch loaned by a private collection. Leighton created that while developing the palette for the vibrant gown in "Flaming June."
The Frick says the two works haven't appeared together since the late 19th century.
"Flaming June" was rediscovered in 1962 behind a false panel of a London home. It was eventually acquired by the museum in Puerto Rico.
