This volume examines the collecting of Spanish decorative arts between about 1850 and 1945, from both British and Spanish perspectives. It focusses on the period in which museums and private collectors in both countries valued and acquired different types of objects from Spain, such as ivory caskets, silk textiles, carpets, lustreware ceramics, furniture, jewellery and silverware. The essays reveal similarities and differences in approach in Britain and Spain, as well as the key figures involved and the differing national contexts in which their activities took place. Highlighted is the role played by specific museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and by local, national and international exhibitions of the decorative arts, in disseminating knowledge about Spanish objects, historical and contemporary.
The book concludes with brief biographies of the key figures and a bibliographical appendix on the collecting of Spanish art in Europe and North America and the collecting of Spanish decorative arts in Great Britain, Spain and wider Europe.
