Living Hall History
In this room, Thomas Hastings and Sir Charles Allom achieved a splendid setting for the remarkable works of art it still contains. Striking portraits by Holbein, El Greco, Titian, and a masterpiece by Bellini hang against oak-paneled walls to create the feeling of an Italian Renaissance room. In company with the paintings are pieces of French eighteenth century furniture, Italian Renaissance bronzes, and Chinese porcelains. The installation of paintings and furniture in the Living Hall appears today as it did in Mr. Frick’s lifetime.
