Seminars in the History of Collecting 2010
CALL FOR PAPERS
The seminar series has been established as part of the Wallace Collection’s
commitment to the research and study of the history of collections and
collecting, especially in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Paris
and London. In 2010, we aim at organizing a series of 10 seminars.
We are keen to encourage contributions covering all aspects of the history
of collecting, including:
· Formation and dispersal of collections
· Dealers, auctioneers and the art market
· Inventory work
· Research resources
The seminars, which are normally held on the 1st or 4th Monday of every
month during the calendar year, act as a forum for the presentation and
discussion of new research into the history of collecting. Seminars are
open to curators, academics, historians, archivists and all those with an
interest in the subject. Papers are generally 45-60 minutes long and all
the seminars take place at the Wallace Collection between 5.30 and 7pm.
If interested, please send a brief text (500-750 words) as a proposal.
