FRICK_180The Frick Collection is the first museum I recommend to friends who are visiting New York. Yes, they already know about the Met.
Besides, the Frick is significantly smaller, so after a visit, tourists might have enough energy left for a walk in Central Park as well. The Frick Collection was founded by the famous industrialist Henry Frick. At his death, he wished to turn his New York resistance into a public gallery, exhibiting his most outstanding art works. Given that it was a private house before, the interior of the Frick is warm and very welcoming.
The Collection includes over one thousand works, made by the most influential artists in history, from the Renaissance to the nineteen century. I consider it a privilege to be able to admire superb works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, or El Greco, in Mr. Frick’s own living room.
