The Collection has been open to the public since December 1935. These papers consist of correspondence, one letterpress book, invoices, vouchers, canceled checks, inventories, notes, and printed material documenting the selection, purchase, and disposition of Henry Clay Frick’s art collection.

repositoryThe Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library
descriptionCorrespondence, invoices, inventories, registers, handwritten notes, narrative descriptions, and printed material document the selection, purchase, exhibition, and disposition of art works in his collection from the years 1881 to 1919, with the bulk of the papers documenting purchases.

Historical Note:
Henry Clay Frick was born December 19, 1849, in West Overton, Pa. One of six children, his parents were John W. Frick, a farmer, and Elizabeth Overholt Frick, the daughter of a whiskey distiller and flour merchant. Frick ended his formal education in 1866 at the age of seventeen, and began work as a clerk at an uncle's store in Mt. Pleasant, Pa. In 1871, Frick borrowed money to purchase a share in a coking concern that would eventually become the H.C. Frick Coke Co. Over the next decade, Frick expanded his business through the acquisition of more coal lands and coke ovens, and joined forces with fellow industrialist Andrew Carnegie in 1882. He assumed the chairmanship of Carnegie Bros. & Co. (later Carnegie Steel Co.) in 1889. He served in that capacity until his resignation from the company in December 1899. During his tenure as chairman, differences between Frick and Carnegie emerged, most significantly in their approach to labor issues. This culminated in the 1892 Homestead Strike, widely considered one of the most violent incidents in American labor history. This strained relations between the two men for the remainder of their working relationship, and in 1899, after Carnegie attempted to buy out Frick’s share in the company for a fraction of its real worth, Frick sued. Frick eventually received a satisfactory price for his shares, but agreed never again to hold a position in Carnegie Steel Co.

In December 1881, Frick married Adelaide Howard Childs of Pittsburgh. The couple purchased a house (called "Clayton") in the Homewood section of Pittsburgh, and had four children: Childs Frick (1883-1965), Martha Howard Frick (1885-1891), Helen Clay Frick (1888-1984), and Henry Clay Frick, Jr. (born 1892, died in infancy). After his break with Carnegie in 1899, Frick began spending more and more time on the East Coast of the United States. In 1905, he signed a ten-year lease on the Vanderbilt mansion at 640 Fifth Avenue in New York, and built an elaborate summer residence (“Eagle Rock”) on Boston’s North Shore, which was completed in 1906. Though Frick maintained his status as a Pittsburgh resident for the remainder of his life, he and his family chiefly divided their time between Massachusetts and New York. In 1907, Frick purchased land at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 70th Street, and in 1912, after the wrecking of the Lenox Library formerly on the site, began building the beaux arts mansion which now houses The Frick Collection. Designed by Thomas Hastings of the firm Carrère and Hastings, the family moved into the house at One East Seventieth Street in the fall of 1914, and Henry Clay Frick died there on December 2, 1919.

While there is evidence that Frick had an interest in art collecting as early as 1871 , little is known about his early acquisitions. His first recorded purchase came in 1881, when he acquired George Hetzel’s Landscape with River. Frick purchased only a few paintings over the next decade, but by the mid-1890’s, he was steadily acquiring new pictures at the rate of about one per month. His taste during this period ran toward contemporary French artists, such as Bouguereau and Cazin, and Barbizon School landscapes. After the turn of the century, however, Mr. Frick's taste shifted to eighteenth century English portraits and seventeenth century Dutch paintings, including works by Gainsborough, Lawrence, Vermeer, Cuyp, and Hobbema. He purchased his first Italian Renaissance painting, Pietro Aretino by Titian, and the first of his eight Van Dycks in 1905, the same year he and his family took up residence in the Vanderbilt house. Major acquisitions during this period include Rembrandt’s Self-Portrait, El Greco’s Purification of the Temple, a second painting by Vermeer (Officer and Laughing Girl), and Holbein’s Sir Thomas More. In 1914, the same year in which the Frick family moved into their newly constructed house at One East 70th Street, Mr. Frick's purchases included works by Gainsborough, Goya, Renoir, Turner and Whistler, among others. From 1915 until his death in 1919, Mr. Frick purchased fewer paintings overall, but added works by Bellini, Boucher, Bronzino, Hoppner, and Stuart, as well as additional works Titian, Holbein, and Vermeer.

Although Frick purchased from many dealers while building his collection, he heavily favored the firm of M. Knoedler & Co. Roland Knoedler, Charles Knoedler, and Charles Carstairs were considered friends as well as advisers on art, and Frick made more purchases through them than he did from any other source. A major exception, however, is Frick’s association with Duveen Brothers. Although Frick’s ties to this firm date back to 1906, when rugs, porcelains, and other objects were purchased for the Frick family’s Massachusetts estate, it was not until after the death of J.P. Morgan in 1913 that Frick made his most important acquisitions from them. From 1915 through 1918, Frick purchased millions of dollars of Renaissance bronzes, Chinese porcelains, Limoges enamels, and furniture from the Morgan estate through Joseph Duveen. In 1915, Frick also agreed to purchase the series of panels by Fragonard entitled The Progress of Love (also referred to as The Romance of Love and Youth). The installation of these panels in the Frick residence necessitated a complete renovation of the drawing room, which had only been completed a few months before. In addition to Knoedler and Duveen, Frick acquired paintings through domestic and European galleries such as Arthur Tooth & Sons, L. Crist Delmonico, The Ehrich Galleries, and Durand-Ruel & Sons. Frick also occasionally acquired works through individuals, including Virginia P. Bacon, Alice Creelman, and Roger Fry.

Henry Clay Frick’s acquisitions were carefully considered, and he often kept pictures on approval in his home for months before deciding whether to purchase or return them. In certain instances, though, works of art were bought sight unseen, or brought over from Europe at his expense but not purchased. As Frick’s collection grew and his taste evolved, he sometimes returned works for credit towards another painting, and pictures were also sometimes acquired with the option to return them for full credit within a given period of time. In some cases, he actively sought the opinions of art experts such as Roger Fry, Carel F. de Wild, and Charles Henry Hart before consenting to an acquisition.

Although Frick continued to acquire works of art until his death in 1919 (his last purchase was Vermeer’s Mistress and Maid), he quietly established plans to open his collection to the public after his death as early as 1915. In his will, dated June 24, 1915, Frick bequeathed his New York City residence, including furnishings, art, and decorative objects, as a museum “for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a gallery of art…and encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts, and of advancing the general knowledge of kindred subjects.” The museum was endowed with funds for maintenance, building alterations, and acquisitions of art. Henry Clay Frick’s widow continued to live at the residence until her death in 1931. At that time, the building was extensively renovated, and opened to the public as The Frick Collection in December 1935.

Related Material:
In the fall of 1953, Helen Clay Frick split Henry Clay Frick’s art collection files, sending the materials in this collection to The Frick Collection, while retaining eight linear feet of files related to Mr. Frick’s art works. These files became the property of the Helen Clay Frick Foundation upon the death of Miss Frick in 1984 and are now on deposit in The Frick Collection/Frick Art Reference Library Archives.
