Art History

Frick Digital Collection

The Photoarchive is a study collection of more than one million photographic reproductions of works of art by fourth to mid-twentieth century artists trained in the Western tradition. Each photograph is accompanied by historical documentation that traces the essential elements of the biography of a work of art — changes of attribution, ownership, and condition. The images together with the historical documentation provide an unparalleled resource for the study of the history of art. At present, the Frick is systematically digitizing the Photoarchive collection and making it available on this site.

Note: Some of the images in this collection are currently being cataloged and have limited metadata. Images without documentation are searchable only by Creator name and National School.
