Reception Hall

Between 1940 and 1972, the trustees of The Frick Collection acquired three adjoining properties with plans to build an additional wing and garden. The final structure, designed by John Barrington Bayley, with Harry Van Dyke and G. Frederick Poehler, was completed in 1977. It includes a Reception Hall, Coat Room, and Shop; its lower floor houses exhibition galleries.
