While building a collection of Spanish Old Master paintings, drawings and sculpture, his restless, discerning eye also identified and pursued unexpected and fascinating spheres of art history, such as avant-garde photography, rare books and manuscripts, Colonial silver, and the revolutionary art movements of the early 20th century. His acquisitions embrace all these specialisms and reveal his eye for quality and his engagement with the historical and intellectual hinterland of his collecting interests.
