    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    At the start of the 19th century, interest in pre- and early Renaissance Italian painting grew throughout Europe, especially in Prussia. Hundreds of paintings arrived in Berlin within only a few years. The study documents and identifies these acquired paintings in detail based on newly discovered sources. It uncovers a remarkable network of European collectors, dealers, museums, and politicians.

    "Robert Skwirblies entwickelt in seiner preisgekrönten Doktorarbeit ausgehend von einem intensiven Quellenstudium ein facettenreiches Bild jenes umfangreichen Kunsttransfers, seiner historischen Hintergründe wie der zeitgenössischen Akteure zwischen 1797 und 1830 und erläutert seine Konsequenzen für Gemäldesammlungen und Museumspolitik."
