The Frick Collection Museum is housed in one of the few remaining Fifth Avenue Mansions, the interplay between the superb paintings and sculptures, the opulent house itself and the fine collection of decorative arts provides an experience unique in New York. The House hasn’t change from its original version when it was home to the Frick Family, so that a visit to this Museum also gives insight into the life of the great industrialists and financiers of the turn of the 20th Century.
In 1895 Mr. Frick started his private collection that now is considered one of the greatest small collections in the world. Mr. Frick (1849 – 1919) continued collecting paintings and sculptures for all his life. The Museum collection includes paintings of 18th and 19th century, sculptures, antiques, furniture and more. Artists like Tiepolo, Bellini, Aretino, Vermeer, Bronzino, El Greco, Tuner, Monet, Degas, Carot, Rousseau, Veronese and more.
