Getty Museum announces two acquisitions: A rare Fragonard and a German painting


LOS ANGELES, CA.- The J. Paul Getty Museum today announced two acquisitions—The Pancake Maker , drawn in 1782, by French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard (French, ca. 1732–1806) and The Trinity with the Virgin, Saints John the Evangelist, Stephen and Lawrence and a Donor, 1479, attributed to the famed Peter Hemmel von Andlau (ca. 1420/25–after 1501) Workshop. ”These two acquisitions, which are so unlike one another in style and medium, reflect the Museum’s desire to see that each acquisition lifts up the collection as a whole and enhances our visitors’ experience of European art,” said Thomas Kren, acting associate director for the Collections at the J. Paul Getty Museum. An embodiment of late Rococo style and subject matter, The Pancake Maker depicts a mother cooking
