Publisher's description: The Frick Collection was founded by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), the Pittsburgh coke and steel industrialist, philanthropist and art collector. On his death, he bequeathed his New York residence and remarkable collection of western paintings, sculpture and decorative arts to the public. Designed and built in 1913-14, the mansion is reminiscent of the noble houses of Europe, providing a grand, domestic setting for the art from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century that it contains. The collection includes masterpieces by renowned artists such as Bellini, Constable, Fragonard, Goya, El Greco, Ingres, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Whistler, as well as superb examples of French eighteenth-century furniture, Italian Renaissance bronzes and Limoges enamels.
