The Frick Collection boasts one of the world's great art-related photoarchives. With over one million photographic reproductions of paintings, sculptures, and other works from around the world and across 16 centuries, the Photoarchive represents a great undertaking indeed. Lucky for readers, more than 57,000 of these images are available online. Here readers will find everything from sketches of late 19th century New York to portraits of great men to religious works and drawings of bicycles. Readers may like to begin by reading the History section, which provides an overview of the establishment and growth of the Photoarchive. Other tabs of interest include Discoveries in the Photoarchive, Exhibitions, Digital Photoarchive, and Holdings. With the digitization of the entire Photoarchive a strategic goal of the Frick, readers may be especially interested to note that nearly half of the 57,000 negatives digitized so far are accessible via the ARTstor Digital Collections.
