A dyeline drawing of the Frick garden. Marked ‘House and Garden,’ it was reproduced in an article in the magazine in 1977.
One of Russell Page’s few public commissions, his design for the 70th Street garden at The Frick Collection, a museum close to Central Park in Manhattan’s East Side, is an excellent example of his ability to develop his plan around the particularities of the site. Constructed in 1977, it still survives to this day. Its popularity was made evident in 2015 when public protests successfully halted plans to demolish it.
