The Frick Collection

frick_logoThe Frick Collection is housed in the New York mansion built by industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919). Upon his death, the art collection, the mansion, and all its furnishings were bequeathed to the public. Since then, both the collection and the building have been expanded. Touring the Frick, one sees major works of sculpture, a superb collection of small bronzes, great paintings by the most renowned European artists and premium 18th century French porcelains and furniture. Also on display are Oriental rugs, Limoges enamels, silver, and textiles. Lectures, seminars and concerts are all part of the offerings at the Frick. Be sure to inquire about the Acoustiguide audio tours that contain recorded information about the masterpieces on view. (No children under 10 years of age admitted.)
