"The Frick Collection" Frick Collection Tip by DesertRat

Frick Collection, New York City: 20 reviews and 21 photos

The Frick is one of the finest 'small' museums I've ever seen. Set inside the Fifth Avenue mansion once owned by Pittsburgh industrialist, Henry Clay Frick, the collection concentrates on 17th and 18th century European painting and sculpture as well as a good number of more recent works. Make sure you see Bellini's wonderful 'St. Francis in Ecstasy', El Greco's 'St. Jerome', and Holbein's superb portraits of Sir Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell, all in the Living Hall. This museum is warm and intimate, and offers a look into the sumptuous world of America's *real* money in the 19th century.
