Visitors to The Frick Collection had the unusual opportunity of viewing a number of woodcarvings by Abraham Miller, a craftsman who worked on the decoration of the rooms in the Collection. A striking example of such decorative woodwork is the chimney piece ornamented with garlands of flowers and foliage in the Library. Fifteen works were assembled, five of which had recently been given to the Collection by the artist’s widow, Rose Miller of Bloomfield, New Jersey. The gift includes Mr. Miller’s "masterpiece," a miniature crest in openwork relief, which he made in 1899 to mark the end of his five year apprenticeship.
