The Frick Collection is an art museum with a collection of more than 1,500 works of art—dating from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century—displayed in the intimate surroundings of the former home of Henry Clay Frick. The residence, with its furnishings and works of art, has been open to the public since 1935. The Frick Art Reference Library is an internationally recognized research library that serves as one of the world's leading resources for the study of Western art. The Frick Collection reopened to the public in early 2021 in the Marcel Breuer–designed building at 945 Madison Avenue, formerly home to the Whitney Museum of American Art and most recently The Met Breuer. The temporary location, called Frick Madison, houses the Frick’s collections, programs, and staff during the renovation and expansion of its historic buildings at 1 East 70th Street.
