What the Frick?

Living a stone's throw away from industrialist Henry Clay Frick's Pittsburgh estate Clayton, we noticed his New York mansion-turned-museum in today's New York Times. We have yet to see the Frick Collection, but I'm sure it will be a destination next visit. If you're ever in Pittsburgh, though, be sure to visit Clayton.

  1. *Swoon* what a gorgeous Gainsborough! Oh, to live close enough to big musems to enjoy artworks like this on a regular basis!
