About The Frick Collection:
The Frick Collection is home to a wonderful collection of permanent exhibits, and it also hosts exciting temporary exhibits which provide an opportunity see, for example, works that are rarely on display in the United States such as The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Vermeer and The Goldfinch by Fabritius.
Another splendid feature of The Frick Collection is the building itself. The NYC Museum is housed the former home of the Frick Family, and it is one of the few Gilded Age mansions that still stand in New York City. This once opulent home to Henry Clay Frick, who died in 1919, is a reminder of the way the very wealthy once lived in New York City.
Much of the artwork on display in The Frick Collection was collected by Henry Clay Frick. Since his death, the Museum has continued to purchase pieces which are on display alongside those from Frick’s own collection. A visit to this NY Attraction offers the opportunity to see a Gilded Age home and an impressive art collection. Add this to your must-see list during your next visit to the City.
