On May 14th, The Association of Art Museum Curators selected Fragonard’s Progress of Love at the Frick Collection for First Prize in the category of Outstanding Catalogue Based on a Permanent Collection. Of the award, Brooke Kellaway, AAMC prize jury chair, said that "Fragonard is a catalogue of commendable achievement. The breadth and focus of the subject matter, which is informed by impeccable research and compelling illustrations, is also an intriguing story that thoroughly engages the reader.” The book was published in October 2011 by D GILES LTD in association with the Frick Collection. In addition, Stories in Sterling was selected for Honorable Mention. Ms Kellaway said, "Stories in Sterling contributes new perspectives with in-depth documentation complemented by exceptionally high-quality images.” D GILES LTD published this book this month in association with the New-York Historical Society.
