• Old Masters for a New Generation
Our mission is to foster appreciation, enjoyment and study of pre-twentieth-century artworks and antiquities in the Western European tradition. By creating the Henry Clay Fricks, Archer Milton Huntingtons and Isabella Stewart Gardners of the future, we safeguard and increase the rich legacy of the great collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries. By using an on-line platform to disseminate new research, exhibitions and learning experiences, we bring together scholars, institutions, and collectors, and reach out to a wider audience through web-based public engagement initiatives.

The foundation is the brainchild of Jorge Coll, owner of Colnaghi, whose determination to inject new blood into the world of Old Masters is already provoking interest and excitement.
