The Frick Collection is your home for art from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. Founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919), the museum offers visitors intimate encounters with one of the world’s foremost collections of European fine and decorative arts. The institution’s holdings—which have temporarily relocated to Frick Madison, the Breuer-designed building at 945 Madison Avenue, during the renovation of the Collection’s historic buildings—include celebrated works by Rembrandt, Fragonard, Ingres, Bellini, Vermeer, and more. The Frick Art Reference Library, a leading global resource in the field of art history, was established one hundred years ago by Helen Clay Frick and is open to researchers and the public alike.
