Opis: Catalogue of Italian Pictures at 16, South Street, Park Lane, London and Buckhurst in Sussex (Classic Reprint) - Benson Robert

Excerpt from Catalogue of Italian Pictures at 16, South Street, Park Lane, London and Buckhurst in Sussex<br><br>This collection of the Italian pictures, gathered together during the last thirty years in London, Paris, and Italy, represents the personal taste of its owners, Robert and Evelyn Benson, so far as their opportunities have permitted. Their pictures of the English school, consisting mainly of seventeenth-century portraits, landscapes by Gainsborough and Cotman, and works of Watts, Burne-Jones and Sargent, still await a catalogue.<br><br>They were inspired primarily by the example of two great collectors of the past generation, Mr. William Graham and Mr. Holford, of whom, and of one or two others, a few words may be said.<br><br>Mr. Graham could hardly resist any Early Italian picture, sacred or profane, provided it was reverent or true in feeling. With him conception was more potent than execution, and attributions were of secondary importance. Withal he considered it a duty to buy prudently. "Make up your mind," he said, "beforehand as to the value, and always put on a limit. Or, if it be a masterpiece and you want it badly, you may go up to double its market value, or even more! But be sure and think it out beforehand, and don't be carried away at the auction, nor rushed by a clever seller."<br><br>The capacity to plunge coute que coute for a masterpiece is one of the rarer virtues of the good collector.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com<br><br>This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition. We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully; any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
