An Aesthetic Odyssey The Peter Rose and Albert Gallichan Collection

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 11 settembre 2021

London – Christie’s will offer An Aesthetic Odyssey ~ The Peter Rose and Albert Gallichan Collection in a live auction on 30 September 2021. The couple were pioneering collectors of 19th Century fine and decorative arts and this unique collection was a shared passion assembled over the course of a lifetime from the 1950s onwards. The sale comprises approximately 300 lots of British decorative arts and paintings spanning the major movements of the later 19th century. Highly regarded and recognised as academically important, a number of bequests of both decorative and fine arts from the collection have been accepted by museums including The British Museum and The Ashmolean. This sale provides the market with a unique microcosm of the best of the period. Albert Gallichan died in 2001; the sale takes place now following the death of Peter Rose last year at the age of ninety-three.Ensuring that the scholarly legacy of their life’s work lives on, the proceeds from the sale – which is expected to realise in excess of £1 million, with estimates starting from £500 – will benefit The Albert Dawson Educational Trust. Established in 2003, using the middle names of the two collectors for its title, the trust promotes and supports the study of 19th century English fine and decorative arts. The increased resources raised will be used to develop a more substantial programme of grants and to enable the trust to offer other support from 2022.
