The Frick Art Reference Library remains at the forefront of art historical research through its robust acquisitions program. Contributions to the acquisitions fund enable the Library to purchase rare and historically significant volumes that add to its world-class collection of books, monographs, catalogues, periodicals, and other unique resources. Acquisitions span numerous languages, formats, and publication dates, deepening the Library’s holdings. Subjects relate to the history of collecting, provenance, cultural heritage, the art market, and artists trained in the Western tradition from C.E. 300 through the mid-twentieth century.
