Description - Frick Madison by Xavier F Salomon

This handsome volume documents the temporary installation of The Frick Collection in its temporary home, with stunning photographs by Joseph Coscia Jr. and a reflective foreword by Roxane Gay. The Old Master paintings and European sculpture and decorative arts at the renowned Frick Collection might be thought to be all but inextricable from the domestic setting of the Gilded Age mansion in which they reside. For a couple of years, however, while the Frick is undergoing renovation, highlights from the collection have been relocated to a radically different, unlikely home: Marcel Breuer's Brutalist building five blocks away, which the architect designed for the Whitney Museum of American Art. The result is a stunning reconstruction and re-presentation of a beloved collection, with the museum's treasures comfortably and elegantly adapting to their temporary modernist abode. This handsome volume documents this altogether singular moment in the Frick's history with stunning photographs by Joseph Coscia Jr. and a reflective foreword by Roxane Gay. AUTHORS: Xavier F. Salomon is the Frick's Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator. Joseph Coscia Jr., Head Photographer for The Frick Collection, has extensive experience photographing gallery installations, architecture, and a variety of art objects. Roxane Gay is an author and social commentator, as well as a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times. Xavier F. Salomon is the Frick's Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator. 100 colour illustrations
