Symposium: The Orléans Collection: Tastemaking, Networks and Legacy Back

The New Orleans Museum of Art and the Frick Collection’s Center for the History of Collecting will host a symposium in conjunction with The Orléans Collection exhibition, dedicated to the collecting and collection of Philippe II, Duc d’Orléans, (1674–1723) and on view at the New Orleans Museum of Art through January 27, 2019.

The symposium will consider Philippe d’Orléans’s taste and the impact the collection had for generations of collectors and artists, and an increasingly wider public throughout the eighteenth century. Subjects of interest include: Philippe II’s patronage network; fellow collectors and trends in collecting in Paris; dealers and the art market in eighteenth-century Paris; the “Orleans Effect” in Great Britain and later entrance into public collections.
