Impressionism for England: Samuel Courtauld as Patron and Collector - used book

ID: 7993741

In 1923, the industrialist Samuel Courtauld gave #50,000 to the nation to form the core of a great collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. Simultaneously, he was building up the finest collection of French late-19th century paintings ever made in Britain, most of which went into the collection at the Courtauld Institute of Art. This book tells the story of Courtauld's collecting and patronage. Essays by several writers place his activities in the contexts of the English cultural milieu and of his family, while the gradual acceptance of modern French art in England's national museums is charted. Detailed catalogue entries discuss all the French pictures in the Courtauld's private collection, and a complete list of his purchases is presented in an annotated checklist that makes use of much recently discovered information. Impressionism and England is published to accompany a major exhibition at the Courtauld institute opening on 17th June 1994. arts music and photography,biographies,collections catalogs and exhibitions,criticism,history,history and criticism Arts, Music & Photography, Yale University Press

Details of the book
Impressionism for England: Samuel Courtauld as Patron and Collector

In 1923, the industrialist Samuel Courtauld gave (actual symbol not reproducible)50,000 to the British government to encourage the purchase of a collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. At the same time, he continued to build up his own fine collection of French late nineteenth-century paintings, most of which he later gave to the Courtauld Institute of Art. This beautiful book tells the story of Courtauld's collecting and patronage. The introductory essays offer a reassessment of the cultural history of England between the wars, exploring Courtauld's collecting and patronage from a variety of perspectives. John House writes on the position of the collection within Impressionism and examines the gradual acceptance of modern French art in England's national museums; Andrew Stephenson places Courtauld's collecting in the context of the cultural politics of England in the period; and John Murdoch discusses his activities in relation to the history of the Courtauld family. The remainder of the book presents detailed catalogue entries that discuss all the French pictures in Courtauld's private collection; a complete, annotated checklist of his purchases draws on recently rediscovered original receipts, and an anthology of original texts illuminates the debates about the acceptance of modern French art in London's museums. Impressionism for England accompanies the 1994 Summer Exhibition at the Courtauld Institute Galleries, which focuses on the private collection of Samuel Courtauld, including the paintings he gave to the Institute and works that he bequeathed to friends and members of his family. At the same time, the National Gallery in London will behighlighting the remainder of Courtauld's purchases, the pictures bought for the national collection. Distributed for the Courtauld Institute Galleries.
