Creelman began corresponding with Frick after the death of her husband, jounalist James Creelman, in 1915. That year, she arranged for Frick to purchase two works (Holbein's Thomas Cromwell and Titian's Portrait of a Man in the Red Cap) from the collection of Sir Hugh Lane. She later had a hand in Frick's acquisition of works by Whistler and Van Dyck, and offered him works by a number of other artists, including Roselius, Donatello, Fragonard, Giorgione, Rubens, Tiepolo, Whistler, Romney, Reynolds, and Vigée-Lebrun.
