Ian Wardropper Named Frick Director

The Frick Collection announced today that Ian Wardropper will serve as the next director of the museum. Mr. Wardropper, currently chair of the department of European sculpture and decorative arts at the Met, replaces Anne Poulet, who has served as Frick director since 2003. He begins October 3.

Mr. Wardropper was also a finalist for the Met directorship and listed as a candidate in my April story examining Ms. Poulet’s rumored successors.
