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!

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.
