Seminars in the History of Collecting 2014

This well-established seminar series, organised by our Fellow Jeremy Warren, forms part of the Wallace Collection’s commitment to research into the history of collections and collecting, especially in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Paris and London. As in previous years, a series of around ten seminars is planned for 2014, and contributions are now being sought on such topics as the formation and dispersal of collections, dealers, auctioneers and the art market, collectors, museums, inventory work and research resources.

Papers are generally 45 to 60 minutes long, and the seminars are normally held on the fourth Monday of the month, between 5.30pm and 7pm. Proposals of up to 750 words, including a brief CV and an indication of which month you are free to speak, should be sent by 9 September 2013 to Carmen Holdsworth-Delgado, Curatorial Assistant at the Wallace Collection.

Deadline 9 September 2013
