Located on Seattle’s First Hill, the Frye Art Museum first opened its doors in 1952. The founding collection of 232 paintings, primarily late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century German art, has expanded to include nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century American artworks that complemented the Founding Collection.
