By the way, since the Frick's refusal to admit children under ten is so mean, I'm going to mention it every time AHN reports any news from the Frick. The Frick says it is because "few ropes or cases are used to guard fragile objects", but that makes no sense; of all the museums I've been to, the Frick's room wardens are the most brutal. If you even look like you're getting too close to a picture, they're onto you. The no kids rule dates back to 1935, and if you read the Frick's statement on the policy you get the feeling they're rather proud of it.
