Walk through the doors of a 1914 mansion where you’ll be greeted by magnificent works of art dating back to the 16th century. Within the Henry Clay Frick House lies a prized collection of some of the world’s most recognized artistic masterpieces, known as The Frick Collection.
In honor of Henry Frick’s final wishes, his family’s mansion was converted into a museum after the death of him and his wife, officially opening to the public on December 16, 1935. From the day of its founding, the museum has been admired for its esteemed works of art, porcelain, sculpture, and its concert series.
Stroll through the galleries of The Frick Collection to see brilliant paintings by well-known artists, such as Johannes Vermeer, Francois Boucher, and John Hoppner. Examine intricately designed sculptures like the 15th century Angel by Jean Barbett, or Michelangelo Buonarroti’s powerful 16th century sculpture of Pieta.
Also on display is a fascinating collection of furniture, ceramics, paper etchings, clocks, portrait medals, and silver all dating back to the 16th century.
Visit The Frick Collection throughout the year for various exhibitions showcasing the amazing world of art. View the large collection of 450 portrait medals by Stephen K. and Janie Woo Scher or the inspiring 1600 era collection from Rembrandt: Abraham Entertaining the Angels. You may also have the opportunity to see recently conserved paintings of Paolo Veronese from the 16th century.
Along with the amazing art collection, the museum also hosts an esteemed concert series. Enjoy breathtaking performances by the Mozart Piano Quartet or a beautiful cello and piano duet by Julius Berger and Christoph Hammer, along with many others.
During your visit you can also sit in on educational lectures and symposiums focused on various artists and their works. Drop in during a Salon Evening for special performances of drama, dance, and music, or come on a Friday night to access all that the museum has to offer – for free!
