Henry Frick (1849-1919). Historical artwork of the American industrialist, financier and art patron Henry Clay Frick. Frick founded the H. C. Frick and Co. Carnegie Steel Company, played a major role in the formation of US Steel and financed the construction of the Pennsylvania Railroad. He is known for his lack of morality and ruthless approach to business, and was known by his critics as 'the most hated man in America'.

He also donated 150 acres (0.61 square km) of land to the City of Pittsburgh, USA, for use as a public park, now known as Frick Park.
