The Breakfast Room: A Serene Step Back in Time

April 30, 2024

In this episode of Renovation Stories, Curator Aimee Ng offers a preview of the Breakfast Room, one of the new galleries Frick visitors will encounter as part of the unprecedented public access to the museum’s second floor. The room, long used as staff offices, was originally where the Frick family had breakfast when they resided at 1 East 70th Street. Based on archival images and documents, the reinstalled Breakfast Room will display mostly nineteenth-century French landscape paintings—a particular favorite of Henry Clay Frick—along with meticulously restored furnishings.
