The Frick at Your Fingertips: Biweekly Highlights

The Frick at Your Fingertips

The start of the snowy season recalls Monet’s Vétheuil in Winter, explored in depth in a recent episode of Cocktails with a Curator and on the app. At the end of this challenging year, we are looking to the story of this work, which Monet created during a difficult period in his own life. Nevertheless, he continued to paint, producing breathtaking canvases of the town of Vétheuil from every vantage point, at every time of day, during every season.

We hope that, like Monet, you find inspiration through art this winter. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your support of and engagement with the Frick over the last nine months and we look forward to sharing more moments of connection in the new year.
