The New York Times has published an interesting article on the Frick Collection's relocation to Breur Building on Madison Avenue. The two year move is due to the expansion of their existing building on 1 East 70th Street. Not only have 104 of the museum's masterpieces shed their usual plush surroundings but they have also gone without any 'descriptive texts' too.

The newspaper has described the new setting as:

Frick Madison is European art history distilled, and it’s a swaggering wager on the collection’s sufficiency and an audience’s attention span. You can study up via print, app or video, but your primordial task here is to look, look, look.
