Restoring Mrs. Frick's Boudoir

March 28, 2023

Xavier F. Salomon, Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, takes us behind the scenes into the revitalization of the Boucher Room—one of the most exciting aspects of The Frick Collection’s renovation and enhancement project. Named for its paintings by François Boucher and his workshop, the Boucher Room (formerly installed on the ground floor) is returning to its original location upstairs, where it was once Adelaide Frick’s private sitting room. Visitors can look forward to enjoying the room in its historic space overlooking Fifth Avenue, among the museum’s new second-floor galleries.

The reinstallation of the Boucher Room is overseen by architectural restorers from Traditional Line Ltd.
