Art Dealing in the Gilded Age – A Window on the Art Market: Colnaghi and their Associates c1890 – c 1940 on September 26th at Waddesdon Manor nr. Aylesbury
This one day conference has been arranged by Colnaghi, Waddesdon Manor (The Rothschild Foundation and the National Trust) and the University of Buckingham.
From c 1890 to 1940 Colnaghi was a key player in the international art market selling major works to some of the most important American collectors as well as to those in Europe, including public collections.
Fortunately their fascinating archive has survived and is currently stored in the Waddesdon archive on the estate. The conference will bring international scholars researching the art market together and as well as Colnaghi their competitors including Agnew’s, Duveen and Knoedler. Waddesdon is, of course, the perfect venue for such a conference as it houses a collection built up from the 19th century by four generations of the Rothschild family, with some purchases from both Agnew’s and Colnaghi.
