The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library

One of the great steel and railroad barons of the last century, Henry Clay Frick used some of his wealth to amass an awesome collection of art, which he bequeathed to the public upon his death in 1919. Visitors to the Frick site can browse through over 120 of the 1,100 artworks in the collection, including paintings (an eclectic selection of works by Bellini, Constable, Gainsborough, El Greco, Piero della Francesca, Rembrandt, and Vermeer, among others), sculpture, and decorative arts. This can be most easily accessed through the Collection link (select The Frick Collection from the homepage). Each image is accompanied by an annotation and bibliographic information. Those with higher bandwidth connections can take the Virtual Tour and browse the collection via the IPIX Virtual Reality plug-in. Links from the art to the annotations are available. The site also features a link to the Frick Collection's Art Library (select Art Library from the homepage), which is highlighted by the availability of FRESCO (Frick Research Catalog Online).
