Final Weeks to Experience Frick Madison before March 3 Closure

Last-Chance Opportunities at the Frick’s Temporary Home Include a Special Installation by Pastelist Nicolas Party and “Last Look” Saturday Gallery Talks

New York (February 1, 2024)—This month, art enthusiasts and New York City visitors will have their final opportunity to experience Frick Madison, the acclaimed temporary residency of The Frick Collection. Frick Madison will close its doors on Sunday, March 3, 2024, as the institution begins to prepare for the move back to its renovated buildings on East 70th Street, which will reopen in late 2024.

The final weeks of Frick Madison offer visitors the last chance to view the once-in-a-lifetime installation of highlights from the Frick’s permanent collection, shown for the first time outside of the museum’s historic home. Masterpieces on display include works by Fragonard, Holbein, Rembrandt, Turner, Vermeer, and Whistler, as well as significant sculptures, porcelain wares, carpets, bronzes, and other decorative arts objects. At Frick Madison, works are presented chronologically and by region and complemented by the modernist setting of Marcel Breuer’s iconic building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Also on view through March 3 is Nicolas Party and Rosalba Carriera, a remarkable site-specific pastel mural by the Swiss-born contemporary artist Nicolas Party. Party’s installation is inspired by an eighteenth-century pastel portrait by Venetian Rococo artist Rosalba Carriera from the Frick’s permanent collection. Occupying three walls in the museum’s Italian Galleries, the ephemeral mural is presented with the Rosalba pastel and two specially created portraits by Party, who is considered the preeminent pastelist working today.

Beginning February 10 and continuing through March 2, Saturdays during the final month of Frick Madison will feature brief gallery talks presented by the museum’s educators.
