    Frye Art MuseumFrye Art Museum Seattle, Washington
    the Frye museum of art in Seattle, Washington houses sculpture and paintings from the 19th century to the current day, with the nucleus being donated by Emma and Charles Frye, the owner of a meatpacking plant, who had put money aside to construct a museum to house their outstanding paintings of more than 230. It opened in 1952, and became the city's first free art museum, originally designed by Paul Thiry, although it has been remodeled a few times since. The art that Frye collected and gave to the museum is considered representational works that lean towards the dark and dramatic, which would decide the course of the museum's collecting until the early 1990s when new and professional management was brought in to update and diversify the collection. Today, the Frye showcases many types of sculptures, works on paper, prints and paintings that have been created by such well known artists as Fritz von Uhde, Eugene Boudin, Franz von Lenbach, Tim Lowly, William-Adolphe Bougereau, Felix Ziem, Hermann Corrodi, Eugene Isabey, Franz Stuck and Ludwig von Zumbusch.
