  INFO FRICK COLLECTION MUSEUM
by eden_teuling
 
 

This collection is housed in the former residence of Henry Clay Frick (1849 - 1919), which was designed by Thomas Hastings and constructed in 1913 - 14.

After Mrs. Frick's death in 1931 changes and additions to the building were made by the architect John Russell Pope, and in 1935 the collection was opened to the public.

The collection attempts to preserve the ambiance of Mr. Frick's private house and visitors are therefore asked to observe regulations necessary for protecting the works of art and their domestic setting.

The collection includes some of the best-known paintings by the greates European artists major works of sculpture ( among them one of the finest groups of small bronzes in the world), superb 18th century French furniture and porcelains, Limoges animals, Oriental rugs, and other works of remarkable quality.

It is suggested that the rooms be visited in the order indicated by the numbers on the plan.

Opening hrs.: 10AM - 6PM Tuesdays through Saturdays, and from 1PM - 6PM on Sundays.

Closed: Mondays.

I enjoyed this museum very much and bought a lovely leather bookmark as a keep sake in the lovely museum shop.

They have lots of postcards and reproductions......
