The Frick Collection is housed in the former residence of Henry Clay Frick, the Pittsburgh coke and steel industrialist.
The building, located on Fifth Avenue across the street from Central Park erected in 1913-14, was designed by the American architect Thomas Hastings in a style reminiscent of European domestic architecture of the eighteenth century.
The opportunity to explore the building itself is worth the visit. That said the mansion houses an extraordinary collection of the works of the old masters including, Constable, El Greco, Frans Hals, Gainsborough, Hans Holbein the Younger, Hogarth, Ingres, Jan van Eyck Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Titian, Turner, Vermeer and Whistler.
