Percy Moore Turner : Connoisseur, Impresario & Art Dealer - by Sarah A. M. Turner (Hardcover)
About this item
Though he was the primary mentor for the Courtaulds as they built their renowned art collection in London, Percy Moore Turner (1877–1950), a prominent art dealer in London and Paris, is largely forgotten today outside of France. This book, the first biography of Turner, aims to rectify that. Drawing on previously unexplored business papers and Turner’s own unpublished account of his life, Sarah A. M. Turner—his granddaughter—here tells the story of Turner’s life and work, from his tireless early promotion of French artists to his involvement with the Bloomsbury Group to his careful distribution of his own art collection to suitable museums and galleries as his life neared its close.
