Frick Collection

1 E. 70th St.

The Frick Collection is one of New York City's most beloved cultural treasures; with extraordinary works of Western European art from the Renaissance right up to the end of the 19th century, industrialist Henry Clay Frick charitably bequeathed his collection to the public. The Frick family's former Fifth Avenue mansion and the unique ambience of an art connoisseur's private home has been preserved in the Frick Collection. Remarkable paintings, sculptures, and decorative art objects are presented in public programs, such as free lectures and concerts. The Frick Art Reference Library is esteemed worldwide by scholars and students, and is also open to the public.
