From March 2021 through March 3, 2024, highlights from the Frick’s permanent collection were shown in an unprecedented display at Frick Madison, the Marcel Breuer–designed building that was once the home of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
The Frick presents an installation inspired by the acclaimed Diptych publication series. In conjunction with a book focused on Claude Monet’s Vétheuil in Winter, the Frick shows a work created for the occasion by Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967, Denmark) alongside the Monet painting, one of the museum’s few Impressionist works.
This exhibition presents a remarkable promised gift of European works on paper. Along with figurative sketches, independent studies, and portraits are two vivid landscape scenes. Artists include Boucher, Caillebotte, Degas, Fragonard, Goya, Sargent, and Vigée Le Brun.
