A celebration of the exceptional collection of Renaissance art assembled by Edmond Foulc and its purchase by the Philadelphia Museum of Art

In 1930, the Philadelphia Museum of Art acquired the collection of medieval and Renaissance sculpture and decorative arts assembled by Edmond Foulc (1828–1916). Foulc’s beautiful Paris residence was an important gathering place for like-minded art enthusiasts and collectors such as Frédéric Spitzer, Alexander Basilewsky, and Émile Gavet, and this book explores his collecting practice in context as well as the museum’s efforts to secure these treasures for its new building. An extended essay on the collection’s highlights includes discussions of famous works such as the choir screen from the Château de Pagny, an enamel triptych by the Master of the Large Foreheads, the Virgin and Child by Desiderio da Settignano, and Adoration of the Christ Child by Luca della Robbia, in addition to magnificent examples of cutlery, metalwork, and  furniture.
Jack Hinton is associate curator of European decorative arts and sculpture at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Alexandra Gauthier is a PhD student at the Sorbonne, Paris, and an expert on Edmond Foulc.
