Description


The Old Master paintings and European sculpture and decorative arts at the renowned Frick Collection might be thought to be all but inextricable from the domestic setting of the Gilded Age mansion in which they reside. For a couple of years, however, while the Frick is undergoing renovation, highlights from the collection have been relocated to a radically different, unlikely home: Marcel Breuer's Brutalist building five blocks away, which the architect designed for the Whitney Museum of American Art. 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 modernist abode. This handsome volume documents this altogether singular moment in the Frick's history with stunning photographs by Joseph Coscia Jr. and a reflective foreword by Roxane Gay.
