Get in the seasonal spirit by exploring all of our magnolia content, including a video with Horticulturist Galen Lee, who has been taking care of the Frick's iconic trees for over half of their 85-year lives.

Renovation Stories

"A Refurbished Backdrop for the Heart of The Frick Collection"

Since the Frick’s beginnings, the sumptuous green velvet of the West Gallery has provided a perfect backdrop for the paintings and objects on display in the grand room. The fabric—recently rewoven by Prelle, the same French manufactory that made the original in 1914—is being reinstalled as part of our ongoing renovation project. In our latest video, Ian Wardropper, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Director, and Olivier Lhermite, founder of Couture for Homes, explain the labor-intensive process.
