About This Web Site | www.frick.org
Floyd Sweeting III, Head, Technology and Digital Media, Vivian Gill, Creative Director for Digital Media, and Valery Chen, Front-End Web Developer, are responsible for the layout, design, development and maintenance of this Web site. In 2012 we re-launched our site using Drupal, enhancing its clarity and accessibility as well as adding an array of new programs and features. Digital Media liaisons in each department of The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library contribute to developing the content for the sites. A committee representing all parts of the institution discusses content and partnerships. The Web site is under the editorial direction of Michaelyn Mitchell.

Image Database | images.frick.org
This site enables visitors to browse and download JPEGs of large format digital files (including rare books and photographs). It is a Xinet Digital Asset Management System database developed by Julie Shean, former Database Administrator, and maintained by Luciano Johnson, Digital Projects Manager, in conjunction with Courtney Toumey, Database Administrator.
The 57,000 large-format negatives that comprise the bulk of this collection are, for the most part, unique visual records of lesser-known and previously unpublished works of art. The most substantial section of the collection is composed of negatives from the American photography campaigns. Between 1922 and 1967, Frick staff photographers conducted field trips to document works of art, primarily early American portraits, in American collections.
