A Few Italian Pictures collected by... With an Introduction by R. Langton Douglas

by (LOCKER-LAMPSON, Godfrey)

Condition: See description


Frontis. & 19 photographic plates. 47 pp. Large 4to, orig. blue cloth (extremities rubbed), upper cover lettered in gilt. [London: Privately Printed at the Chiswick Press, c. 1937]. This copy belonged to Benedict Nicolson (1914-78), a prominent art historian. Locker-Lampson (1875-1946), an MP and author, formed a highly selective collection of Italian paintings. They include Pietro Longhi's Visit to a Library, Vivarini's St. Jerome (National Gallery of Art, Washington), and Bacchiacca's Eve with Cain and Abel (Metropolitan Museum of Art). The works were eventually dispersed in 1938. It is likely that this catalogue was prepared as a record of the collection before its contents were auctioned off. Very good copy. Stamp of "Tomas Harris Ltd. 6, Chesterfield Gardens, Curzon Street, London W.1.".
