The Art Fund Annual Lecture - Private Loss and Public Gain: London and the Collecting of Old Masters by Christopher Lloyd
- Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery |
The lecture takes place in the Town Close Auditorium at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery. Christopher Lloyd is a Trustee of the Art Fund, a Governor of Gainsborough’s House, Trustee of the Living Paintings Trust, the President of NADFAS and has previously held the posts of Assistant Keeper, Ashmolean Museum, and Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures. Christopher is also Chairman of the Regional Development Group of The Art Fund which has the objective of increasing the effectiveness of our regional teams.
Christopher Lloyd will examine three particular moments when a high
concentration of outstanding collections of old master paintings could be found
in Central London. They were the first half of the 17th century, the years
following the French Revolution culminating in the Napoleonic Wars, and the
beginning of the 20th Century. On each occasion these collections provided
a catalyst for the development of taste in art and influenced painters and
critics. Christopher will examine the impact of these high concentrations
on the development of public and royal art collections, the art market and the
dispersal of art beyond the UK.
