The Frick Collection is set to open at the corner of Fifth Avenue and East Seventeenth Street on New York’s Upper East Side.

Marcel Breuer, recently give home to met Breuer and before was home to the Whitney Museum of American Art for nearly five decades. Officials announce that Frick Madison will entertain the public from March 18 with timed entry tickets that will be available online from February 19. Frick Madison will open four days a week from Thursday through Sunday with occupancy of 25 percent 

However, $160 million was spent on the move to Brutalist structure renovation and expansion of Frick Mansion, which is the estimated value of the last two years. Frick director Ian Wardropper in a statement said that “while the Frick has successfully maintained contact with audiences locally, nationally, and around the globe through our thought-provoking digital programs since having to close last March, we have greatly missed the direct, in-person interactions with the public. We are looking forward to sharing our collections again in person, reframed in a setting that has inspired fresh perspectives,”

Curatorial team led by chief curator and deputy director Xavier F. Salomon has taken notice of the 1966 Breuer building’s stark, nearly windowless interior and has abandoned the cozy, clustered hangs mingling works by various artists that characterized the presentation of Henry Clay Frick’s unmatched old masters collection at the industrialist’s elegant Gilded Age home. On view for the first time will be all fourteen works comprising Fragonard’s “Progress of Love” series, alongside two rarely seen seventeenth-century Mughal carpets, which were not on display in the Frick Mansion. Then the works will be presented by region across three floors, with each floor showing works from a different area of Europe displayed in chronological order, from the earliest to the most recent.
