Art in the Frick Collection by Charles Ryskamp
Book DescriptionCovering a wide array of great paintings, as well as rarely-published sculptural treasures and numerous masterpieces of the decorative arts, this is an illustrated survey of the Frick Collection, housed in a Fifth Avenue mansion in New York City. It was founded by Henry Clay Frick, an industrialist whose interest in and knowledge of art led him to begin buying artworks in about 1880. Separate sections of the book are devoted to paintings, sculpture and the decorative arts, presenting colour reproductions of some of the collection's most prized works. They include Bellini's "St Francis in the Desert", Holbein the Younger's portrait of Sir Thomas More, El Greco's "Purification of the Temple", three Vermeers, seascapes and landscapes by Turner, and works by Degas, Renoir, Monet and Whistler. There are also portrait busts by Andrea del Verrocchio and Jean-Antoine Houdon, and furniture made for Marie-Antoinette, as well as views of the mansion and the richly furnished rooms in which the works are installed.
