Explore, The Frick Collection.
The Frick Collection is one of those museums I had never really paid attention to before exploring it. The museum is a magnificent combination of major paintings of the greatest European artists, fine sculptures, and decorative furnishing.
Its name comes from Henry Clay Frick, a successful American industrialist whose passion was to collect fine art and objects. The museum opened to the public in 1935, 19 years after Frick’s death, and is housed in his former residence on the Upper East Side. The Garden Court, a splendid and peaceful garden with Ionic columns (one of three column styles builders used in ancient Greece) and symmetrical plants reflects the beauty and spirit of the place.
Monet, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Goya… The Frick Collection is a showcase for art lovers. Make sure to complete your tour with a free audio guide. You will be sure to hear the painters’ secrets.
Happy 4th of July!
