One Hundred Years at the Library: Treasures from the Frick Archives

January 30, 2024

Take a dive into the Frick Archives! Sally Brazil, Barbara G. Fleischman Associate Chief Librarian for Archives and Records Management, takes us on a tour of three decorative arts–related collections housed in the Frick Art Reference Library: the research archive of Winthrop Kellogg Edey, a noted collector of clocks and watches; the inventory of the Italian silversmith Luigi Valadier; and the archive of Bernard and Lydia Starr, central figures in the collecting of Wedgwood ceramics.

Stay tuned! The next part of the library’s anniversary series will continue after we return to our renovated Fifth Avenue home in late 2024.

All the objects highlighted in this video series are featured in the celebratory publication One Hundred Objects in the Frick Art Reference Library, available for purchase at the shop. You can consult materials in the library's collections in our reading room—book a free visit today.

One Hundred Years at the Library is supported in part by Virginia and Randall Barbato.
