The Frick Collection originated with Henry Clay Frick, who bequeathed his personal collection of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts and his Manhattan residence to the public. In 1920, a year after his passing, Henry's daughter, Helen Clay Frick, established the Frick Art Reference Library to provide public access to her late father's personal collection. Fifteen years later, his Manhattan residence was opened to the public as a museum. Today, The Frick Collection's holdings have more than doubled. Exhibitions, programming, and community partnerships engage and amplify enjoyment of works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Bellini, Fragonard, Goya, Turner, Whistler, and many other artists.
The Frick Collection's mission goes beyond preserving and exhibiting the collection for the public. The organization is equally committed to cultivating historical knowledge of the arts through research and scholarship; it has served as an educational resource for scholars, students, and the public for more than a century. Today, the Frick Art Reference Library is one of the world's leading art history research centers.
