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 neighborhoods 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 neighborhood, 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.

What a treat to visit the Frick Madison in the former Met Breuer building!! We had visited the Frick Collection in its home location on a previous visit to New York. This time, after months of watching the Frick curators share the collection via weekly virtual programs, We had to return to see the paintings and sculptures and other works up close and personal in this new setting. It was truly a privilege to see once again the Fragonards, the Bouchers, Ingres's 'Comtesse d'Haussonville', Turner's Harbor of Dieppe', Constable's 'White Horse', Bellini's 'St. Francis in the Desert', the Whistlers, the Impressionists, and so many other familiar works! The only disappointment was not being able to take photographs within the galleries, not even for the architecture of the rooms (the ceiling is so unique and interesting). During these COVID times, timed tickets bought in advance are required, and at the entrance, vaccination card and photo ID have to be shown, with masks required throughout your visit, except in the cafe garden.

The Frick collection is currently housed in the former Met Breuer building as Frick Madison. It’s strange at first to see these renowned early works hanging on bare walls with no furniture or objects around them. But it makes you appreciate the art in a new way. I especially enjoyed seeing the huge Fragonard series, on the progress of love on these gray walls, and I loved the two tiered displays of ceramic pots and vases, one of blue and white pieces and the other of some in shades of magenta.
With Covid precautions in place, you must reserve ahead of time and are subject to having your temperature taken and wearing a mask.
Well worth a visit!

I went to the Frick for my birthday with some friends and had a wonderful time. The collection is very impressive with a range of artwork, and a free audio guide that gave an explanation about most of the pieces. I highly recommend the Frick Collection to anyone with a few hours to spare!

I was leery about visiting since the Frick mansion is in itself a work of art and intriguing to walk about, and The Met Breuer was just ok.

Here, the Frick collection in the Breuer building is spaced out, wonderfully presented, and somehow you even are able to appreciate the upside-down nature of Breuer building.

Overall, a nice exhibit spaced out on floors 2, 3 and 4. Degas, Monet, Renoir, Vermeer, Rembrandt, El Greco, Whistler, Lawrence,... Amazing collection!

Staircase is easily accessible if you want to avoid the elevators.
You cannot take pictures.

Pics of my favorite works of art that you can see there are attached.

I've been going to the Frick on a regular basis for 40 years, but seeing the paintings displayed in the Breuer space is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For the first time, you can approach the Bellini!

Arguably, the Frick is the best collection in the world / size and quality- three Vermeers out of 36! And three of the very best. The Holbein! The Turners! The Ingres! The Goya and Velasquez!. . .

This should be at the top of the list of any visitor to NYC and every NYorker!

The visit is extermely well organized and not too crowded. Be sure to get your tickets in advance.

Wonderful collection. Smaller setting. Can actually stop, look, and enjoy the many pieces (unlike the busy, overcrowded larger museums). Highly recommend, especially for those that prefer smaller settings.

Visited due to a recommendation from an art teacher and colleague at school. Spent a great 2 hours wandering around this interesting house and getting up close to great works of art. It got busier as we were finishing our tour due to the downpour outside but it was fine while we were there. A few more seats would be good so that you can look at the art a bit more leisurely. Would not hesitate to recommend to other NYC visitors.

This museum reflects the tastes of Frick. There is an audio guide that explains the rooms and the paintings and other objects. Only one American painter. There were three Turners whom I like. The museum is in Mr Fricks former townhome so you can see the collection fairly quickly if you like. There are plentious staff. Worth seeing.

Visted the Frick Madison last weekend. Wonderful temporary home of the Frick’s vast and stunning collection of art. Unfortunately the visit was slightly tarnished by a couple of very rude museum aides, but that didn’t completely detract from the experience.

I enjoyed the museum so much. We visited midweek in the early afternoon, so it was quiet and not crowded.
The collection was larger than I expected and the architecture of the building was very interesting.

Strolling through the rooms with beautiful murals and some furnitures from the family gives you somewhat "special" feelings.
We will visit this place again whenever we have a chance in the future.
