This book is the culmination of a successful conference organised jointly between the Wallace Colllection and the Louvre: The Collection of Louis La Caze. Exploring themes relating to collectors, critics and markets and museums from France, England and Germany, the volume will appeal to academics and students alike, and become essential reading on any course that deals with the history of collecting, the history of taste and the nineteenth-century craze for the perceived douceur de vivre for eighteenth-century France. It also provides valuable insight into the history of the art markets and the formation of museums.
