Designed by Hastings and Carrere, the Frick Collection is housed at the former mansion of Mr. Frick. After he passed away in the early 20th century, his private art collection was aptly made into a museum. Located in New York, the grand setting of the mansion complements this incredible collection of decorative arts and European painting.
The museum is best known for its paintings which span from the last century to the Renaissance. Also among its many holdings are small bronzes, Oriental tapestries and Limoges enamel. This mind-boggling array of masterpieces include canvases by Turner and Constable, portraits by Reynolds and Gainsborough and the Frick’s three Vermeers.
