New Series of Installations in Refurbished Enamels Room to be Inaugurated with a Presentation of Renaissance Works

Resize Text

For the first time in decades, The Frick Collection has undertaken a refurbishment of the Enamels Room display cases designed by John Russell Pope. The intimate wood-paneled Enamels Room, originally a private office for industrialist Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), was transformed into a small cabinet gallery in his lifetime following the acquisition of a collection of rich Renaissance enamels, many formerly owned by J. P. Morgan. His enamels collection has been displayed in this room ever since, together with other Renaissance objects and paintings.
