More even than its parent field of art history, the history of collecting is richly interdisciplinary and necessitates considerations of a vast array of archival, bibliographic, and photographic material in order to evaluate the socio-economic and political context in which art was bought and sold, coveted or denounced. In this lecture, Inge Reist, Director of the Center for the History of Collecting at The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library, will guide us through the maze that faces researchers who seek to know more about the formation of great art collections.
