The monarch was one of the 20th century’s most notable collectors of Chinese art assembling an exceptional private collection which eventually extended to almost 2,500 objects. A large part of his collection can now be found the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities @ostasiatiska on #Skeppsholmen in #stockholm .

They pulled some pieces out of the safe for me to see @hillwoodmuseum-formerly the private home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, now open to the public-including this @cartier sapphire and diamond necklace. Mrs. Post wore it often-there is a portrait of her in it hanging over a Wedgewood mantle in her private quarters. See stories. She commissioned it personally as she did many of her jewels. The sapphire was her own. #jewelry #greatcollectors #washingtondc #greatwomen #cartier

Sidney Knafel - Camille Leprince. Nevers, ewer and basin, circa 1670-1680. My friend Sidney and I are admiring Exceptional examples of Louis XIV Nevers baroque faience. Sid purchased the magnificent ewer from galerie Lefevbre about 15 years ago when I started my internship at Sèvres, musée national de la Céramique, under former director Antoinette Faÿ Hallé, while I was an under-grade student at Paris IV-Sorbonne. Six month ago we’ve managed to secure its (almost certainly) matching basin (that stayed in the same French family for over 100 years). As antique dealers I believe we live for these kind of moments. Some of my friends say I don’t have a job because I get to do what I love every day. They might be right :) #masterpiece #frickcollectionmuseum #thefrickcollection #thefrick #newyorkmuseum #newyorkmuseums #french #frenchart #faience #earthenware #frenchfaience #frenchceramic #baroque #versaillespalace #kinglouisxiv #frenchbaroque #nevers #neversfaience #greatcollectors #collectionneurs

One of the coolest art foundation in Europe.
Foundation Maeght in Saint Paul de Vence (South France).
Art publishers turned art collectors.
Here Chagall, Calder, Mirò and other masters of the xxth century.
A must for people with lust for art / life/ all in between .

One of my best memory is a dinner night among artists talking about Art collecting in a garden that smells of rosemary and flowers . Unforgettable.

Frederick John Horniman was the definition of a passionate collector. Over his lifetime, the great Victorian tea magnate amassed some 30,000 items ranging from natural history to anthropology which formed the basis of the eponymous museum he founded in 1901. This has now grown to 350,000 objects and also includes an aquarium and butterfly house. My fascinating first time visit to this gorgeous Arts and Crafts building in South London, with it’s extensive gardens also generously donated by the founder, was like stepping back in time. The Victorians really did it right 🦋🐚🐠

“Art is an ascending or descending scale, the spirit of its joy reaches us in unexpected ways. It travels on slender threads but it is within the grasp of all who care enough to want to see and understand.” —Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (sculptor and collector) #gertrudevanderbiltwhitney #femalesculptors #sculpture #greatcollectors

Bill Blass. June 2018 – June 2002 The famous Collector of Antiques including photos of his house.
He may have been a legendary fashion designer but he never considered himself a ‘collector’ and indeed said ''I'm not that pretentious,'' nevertheless, he never stopped buying antiques, had eclectic taste and bought items from all over the world. He did his more serious antique buying in London at Christopher Gibbs, Carlton Hobbs, Mallett, Partridge Fine Arts and Pelham Galleries. . Born to a family of modest means in Fort Wayne, Ind., he had to cope with his father's suicide when he was 5 . At 22 years of age he went to New York to work as a sketch artist for a sportswear house.

After the war, he joined Anne Klein and in the 1950's he became chief designer at a women's fashion house, Maurice Rentner. It was often said that Blass ''was able to charm the clothes right onto a woman's back.'' Clients included Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan and many more.
