The Frick Collection
Several weeks ago, we had the pleasure of visiting The Frick Collection. This gem among New York city museums is located in the former residence of Henry Clay Frick and offers the public a very intimate art viewing experience. Many thanks to The Frick Collection for inviting us to record a podcast during our visit!

Interview
We talk to Margaret Iacono (Assistant Curator) and Heidi Rosenau (Manager of Media Relations and Marketing) about the history of The Frick Collection and discuss works by Vermeer and Rembrandt. We were also delighted to have an opportunity to interview Xavier Salomon, who is the Curator of the Veronese exhibition which is on view at The Frick Collection through July 16, 2006.

Production Note:
– Thanks again to Kristen Hileman and Jennifer Wentz of the Hirshhorn Museum! You’ll notice that the recording volume drops out a bit during the interview (mainly when Kathleen and I are asking questions). We were sharing a microphone and didn’t do the best job of passing it back and forth! As always, thanks for listening and thanks for staying subscribed!
