Since The Frick Collectionw as first opened to the public in 1935, it has come to be recognized as one of the world's finest small museums. The paintings, which constitute the core of the collection, range from the thirteenth through the late nineteenth century, and include major works by such artists as Duccio, Bellini, Piero della Francesca, Van Eyck, El Greco, Velázquez, Holbein, Titian, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Dyck, Boucher, Fragonard, Gainsborough, Goya, Turner, Ingres, and Whistler. 

Each of the 164 paintings is reproduced in gravure along with fifty details, reproductions of signatures, and eighteen color plates, which include, four interior views fo the galleries showing the residential character of the installation. A biographical summary of the artist's life and notes on color and physical condition precede each entry. The main body of the text focuses on questions of attribution, iconography, and the relation of the painting to the artist's oeuvre. Information concerning exhibitions and provenance and bibliographical references complete the discussions.
