Dude, WTF is up with the frickin' (no pun intended) big picture at the top of the page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.108.18.111 (talk) 07:55, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Henry Clay Frick House be merged into Frick Collection, as most of the history of the building (1930s until today) coincides with that of the museum. Both articles are short and duplicating information. ELEKHHT 23:39, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Oppose. First the building was built. Then the collection came to it. We have Louvre Palace and Louvre the museum, for example. Gryffindor (talk) 22:42, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Surely he had most of the collection before he built the house in his 60s? Johnbod (talk) 04:18, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I stand corrected. His collection started first and then he moved it into the house. Another part of his collection is in other museums in Pittsburgh. Gryffindor (talk) 13:10, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Merge it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.237.251.185 (talk) 01:50, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Merge (unlike the Louvre and Palace) this collection is more famous than the house ! DavidAnstiss (talk) 22:24, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Mild support while the house article is as short as it is. Johnbod (talk) 04:18, 29 October 2013 (UTC) Oppose - house article is now far longer, & far too long to merge. Indeed it is much fuller than the collection article, which is a pity. Johnbod (talk) 02:36, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support A link makes more sense...Modernist (talk) 11:48, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
