The Orléans Collection: Tastemaking, Networking and Legacy

Friday, January 11 – Saturday, January 12, 2019

Co-organized by the Frick’s Center for the History of Collecting and the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), the two-day symposium held at NOMA will complement its special exhibition, The Orléans Collection, commemorating New Orleans’s tricentennial. The symposium will consider the taste of Philippe II duc d’Orléans and the impact of his collection on generations of collectors and artists, and an increasingly wider public throughout the eighteenth century. Subjects include: Philippe II’s patronage network; fellow collectors and trends in collecting in Paris; dealers and the art market in eighteenth-century Paris; the ‘Orléans Effect’ in Great Britain and later entrance into public collections.
