The first eight volumes of The Frick Collection: An Illustrated Catalogue chronicle the museum’s world-famous holdings of paintings, sculpture, furniture, gilt bronzes, enamels, porcelains, rugs, and silver. Volumes V and VI cover the Frick's extraordinary collection of furniture and gilt bronzes. The twenty-nine Italian and French Renaissance pieces, shown in Volume V, include cassoni, tables, cabinets, and chairs. Together Volumes V and VI present 101 pieces of French eighteenth-century furniture--desks, tables, chests of drawers, cabinets, and chairs--featuring major works by Boulle, Carlin, Heurtaut, Lacroix, Riesener, and Van Risenburgh III. Among the examples of French gilt bronzes are clock cases, andirons, candelabra, candlesticks, and mounted vases by Caffiéri, Duplessis, and Gouthiere.
