Giles Waterfield: "A Mirror to the Frick: The Collector Museums of Britain, 1870-1920"

April 27, 2016

Giles Waterfield, the author of The People’s Galleries, examines the creation and flourishing in Britain of private collections that became museums, from the Bowes Museum to the Wallace Collection to the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery. Do they resemble the Frick, or are their collections and aspirations wholly different?

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art.
