About this Site

The Archives' mission is to document, preserve, and make available historical records of The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library, personal papers of the Frick family, and archival collections in the areas of art history, scholarship, and collecting. This site allows users to search and browse our finding aids, which are descriptive inventories of archival collections.

To explore our finding aids, enter your search term(s) in the box above, or browse by title, subject, name, or collection category using the navigation bar. Terms may be truncated using an asterisk (e.g. photo* searches for photo/s, photograph/s, and photography), and additional terms can be added to your search by clicking the "+" icon.

For digitized archival materials, please visit Frick Digital Collections.

Requesting Materials

Archival materials may be used in the Reading Room of the Library by appointment. Researchers are required to register to use the Library and complete an Application for Access to the Archives. Please contact for more information or to request an appointment.
