Frye Salon features over one hundred paintings from the Frye Art Museum’s Founding Collection hung floor to ceiling—a display mode referred to as a salon-style hang. The installation approximates the dramatic viewing experience enjoyed by visitors to Charles and Emma Frye’s Seattle home in the first decades of the twentieth century.

The Fryes developed their passion for art at the World’s Columbian Exposition, a world’s fair held in Chicago in 1893. The experience greatly influenced the painterly subjects and artists the young couple collected for years to come. Over the next four decades, they purchased canvases by an international roster of artists from Europe and the United States. As children of German immigrants, the Fryes focused particularly on works by German artists.

The couple displayed the collection in private living quarters and a purpose-built gallery attached to their home in First Hill. Major philanthropic supporters of music, the Fryes also hosted concerts and charitable events in their gallery, establishing a model of cross-disciplinary engagement still honored by the museum today.
