Founded by Henry Clay Frick and open since 1935, the museum offers visitors intimate encounters with one of the world’s foremost collections of European fine and decorative arts. The Frick – whose renovated Fifth Avenue buildings will reopen in late 2024 – features celebrated works by Rembrandt, Fragonard, Ingres, Bellini, Vermeer, and more.
