The Frick Art Reference Library Serves as the Major North American Site for John Michael Montias' Database for Documents on Dutch 16th- and 17th-Century Art Collecting

The Frick Collection and Art Reference Library are pleased to announce an important addition to their research collections: a database of more than 40,000 primary documents from the Gemeente Archief Amsterdam, compiled by Yale University Professor Emeritus John Michael Montias, has been installed at the Frick Art Reference Library. The Frick will be the only North-American site to offer access to the complete version of this wealth of information pertaining to patterns of buying, selling, inventorying, and collecting art in Holland during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
