The range of furniture in The Frick Collection is typical of a grand New York residence at the beginning of the twentieth century; a comparable variety of periods and places of origin could be found among the furniture in J. P. Morgan's house and library. Henry Clay Frick brought together French, Italian, and English furniture of the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, choosing examples that complemented his painting and sculpture collections. The historical pieces he acquired were interspersed with furniture designed and made especially for the house by its architects and interior designers.
