Ranging from the Renaissance through the late nineteenth century, the Collection includes works by such celebrated artists as Bellini, Constable, Corot, Fragonard, Gainsborough, Goya, El Greco, Holbein, Ingres, Manet, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Titian, Turner, Velázquez, Vermeer, and Whistler.
In addition to major paintings by these and other masters, the Frick’s galleries contain fine French porcelains, Italian bronzes, sculptures, and period furniture. The permanent collection is further enriched by frequent presentations of special exhibitions.
Established by Henry Clay Frick, the museum was greeted with awe when the doors first opened in 1935. It has grown over the years, while maintaining the special ambiance of an art connoisseur’s mansion, and today the Frick is internationally renowned as one of New York’s most remarkable cultural treasures.
