The Frick is truly one-of-a kind experience here in Pittsburgh. It offers a look deep into the Gilded Age history of industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick and his family who lived at Clayton House from 1883 to 1905. The Frick offers tours of the Victorian house where guests can see the Fricks' glamorous monogrammed china, original furniture, and decadent art collection, as well as an art museum which features exhibits throughout the year, the Car & Carriage Museum, and the Frick Cafe.
Coming to The Frick Pittsburgh on March 17, 2018 is Van Gogh, Monet, Degas: The Mellon collection of French art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Frick is the first stop for this touring exhibition which features over 70 works from the collection of Paul Mellon and shows all of the major artists and movements from 1820 to 1920, including Van Gogh, Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Manet, Matisse, and many more. What's even more exciting is that a number of the works in this collection have not been publicly exhibited in decades and depicts the personal and intimate nature in which the Mellons collected. Van Gogh, Monet, Degas will be displayed until July 8, 2018.
Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper will be covering the tail end of the year into 2019 at The Frick. This exhibition, opening October 13, 2018, marks the artist's first touring retrospective exhibition. It features Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave's life-size renditions of historic clothing created entirely from "painted, pleated, crumpled, and manipulated paper". The exhibition will feature examples from the entire breadth of de Borchgrave's work, including Papiers a la Mode, Splendors of the Medici, The World of Mariano Fortuny, and Les Ballet Russes. The immersive exhibition will be displayed throughout the Frick, "creating a dialogue with the museum's collection." Isabelle de Brochgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper will be at The Frick until January 6, 2019.
