Located at the Henry Clay Frick's former gilded-age mansion designed by Thomas Hastings in 1913, the museum displays masterpieces by artists like Bellini, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Gainsborough, Goya and Whistler. Most were acquired by Mr. Frick. Visitors and can be viewed at The Collection's 16 permanent galleries and ongoing current exhibitions.
