The artwork of The Frick Collection may seem all but inextricable from the domestic setting of the Gilded Age mansion at 1 East 70th Street. For a couple of years, however, while the Frick is undergoing renovation, highlights from the collection have been relocated to a very different home: Marcel Breuer’s modernist creation of stone and concrete, just five blocks away. The result is a stunning reconstruction and re-presentation of a beloved collection, with the museum’s treasures comfortably and elegantly adapting to their temporary home.
This handsome book documents and celebrates the temporary installation of The Frick Collection in the Breuer–designed building, with photographs by Joseph Coscia Jr. and a foreword by Roxane Gay.
