About
The Frick Collection is your home for art from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. Founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919), the museum offers visitors intimate encounters with one of the world’s foremost collections of European fine and decorative arts. The Frick—now in its temporary location at Frick Madison, at the Breuer-designed building at 945 Madison Avenue, while its historic buildings undergo renovation—features celebrated works by Rembrandt, Fragonard, Ingres, Bellini, Vermeer, and more. The Frick Art Reference Library, a leading art historical research center, was established one hundred years ago by Helen Clay Frick and provides access to its rich collections for scholars and the public alike.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.

The art is, of course, wonderful, but the decision to mount it without any explanatory text is a huge mistake. Not even the dates are posted. You can use the audio tour but nobody was, mostly because nobody wants to listen to some self-indulgent curator yammering for three minutes just to get the basic info about each piece. It would take six hours to get through the museum this way. I have no interest in visiting a gallery of this caliber glued to my phone like a moron.

The art was exceptional and the scan information code by each piece via audio was very informative.
I was disappointed that the mansion is undergoing renovation and closed to the public.
I was looking forward to seeing the living quarters after reading The Magnolia Palace by Fiona Davis. It was a great book!

While the original Frick is being renovated, some of the art work is on display at the Frick Madison. There is still nice art work but it pales in comparison to the original Frick. Also there is very few descriptions of the art work. You have to download an app and put the number near the painting on it to get the description. This really detracts from enjoyment of the artwork.

One of the world's great collections - a greatest hits of old masters - on show in a gallery for the only time while its home is refurbished. A brilliant experience - these paintings just glow. Not to be missed!

The Frick Collection was assembled by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), an immensely wealthy American industrialist. The Collection concentrates on Old Masters, especially from the Renaissance. It was a high watermark of European creativity. Frick donated his Collection and his grand residence on Manhattan's Upper East side to the public. The Frick House is currently undergoing renovations, so the Collection is temporarily on display at the Madison House, which was formerly the Whitney Museum of American Art. The Frick Museum houses one of the finest Collections of Old Masters in the Americas it's well worth a visit.

The majority of the Frick Collection is currently housed in the very contemporary Met Breuer building as Frick Madison. Despite the rathe bare rooms, the collection has been brilliantly curated and covers European painting, sculpture and objects such as pottery and furniture, from Renaissance to Impressionists. The Collection is only open Thursday to Sunday and although masks are recommended, they're not mandated. We walked up on a Friday afternoon, so no pre-booking of timed tickets was necessary. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly, so all in all a wonderful collection that is more accessible in its size and far less crowded than the Met.

This review is for the Frick Madison. Yes, go! Went yesterday in NYC. If you love art, well worth it. The place was deliciously empty for a 1:30 ticket (escape the crowds and heat) and you can wander three floors of treasures at your own pace without crowds or anyone in front of you blocking the way. There is an audio guide as well as a paper guide. No photography allowed. I had a wonderful time and purchased a beautiful tote bag. The staff are kind and attentive, especially at the front desk and gift shop. The security guards are professional and thanked me for coming when I left, which was kind, and a nice personal touch. My favorite displays were the Gainsborough paintings and the enamels. If you love art, this is for you. Plus, it's temporary, so you won't have this chance forever. Well worth it. Oh, also, it's only a ten minute walk from the Met. I did a morning tour of the Met, had lunch on the steps, and then walked over to the Frick. Perfect.

Only in NYC for for days, so I didn’t actually get to go, because the Frick Madison was shut four days straight because of Juneteenth and then the three days it is normally closed. Check before you go! I blame slavery … and the trustees.

The Frick Collection consists mainly of Old Masters collected in Europe by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919). Frick was an immensely wealthy industrialist, who rose to the top of New York society during the Gilded Age. Frick donated his collection and the mansion that houses it to the people. Anyone visiting New York City who is interested in art should view the Frick Collection. By the way, the Frick Collection is currently housed in a temporariy gallery while the historic mansion is undergoing renovation.
