Garden Court History

John Russell Pope’s Garden Court was a key element in his scheme for the conversion of the residential mansion into a public museum. An inspired design, which enclosed the mansion’s former exterior courtyard under glass, the Frick’s Garden Court prefigured Pope’s designs for similar courts in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
