Not only is the collection impressive, the home itself is an amazing work of art. Such detail. Architecture is stunning!

If you have ever wanted to wander around an old NYC mansion, visit The Frick collection. Totally unexpected and enjoyable.

We went to see the Girl with a Pearl Earring and then explored the entire building. Magnificent art work all around the building and I particularly liked the inner peaceful courtyard

The Frick is a quiet oasis of high culture in the city. It's collection is extremely selective in the quality of the holdings, they have 10% of Vermeer's entire work for example, but also a great Velazquez, Ingres, Bronzino, Bellini, two Holbeins, two Titians and three great Grecos, an entire room is decorated with panels by Fragonard, another by Boucher which had been commissioned by Mme de Pompadour, a great selection of British painting in the dining room.
Recently there is a new gallery that has been added just for small exhibition of porcelain, sculpture and precious objects, it faces the front garden and has excellent natural light.
The exhibitions that are organized for the downstairs gallery are superb and truly hold an incredible track record on quality and selection, without a doubt it is one of the best museums in the city.
