A special exhibition devoted to White, Allom & Co., the decorating firm responsible for many of the first-floor interiors of The Frick Collection, centered around what is believed to be the decorator’s model for the Library, on loan from the Museum of the City of New York. Also included were a number of the collection’s own studies by White, Allom & Co. for furniture designed especially for the residence of Henry Clay Frick, as well as several woodcarvings by Abraham Miller, a craftsman associated with the firm, who carved the Library’s mantelpiece with floral garlands.
