The Estorick Collection



The Estorick Collection

A magnificent collection of Italian art.

Location: 39a Canonbury Square, Islington, London, N1 2AN

Description: This grade 2 listed Georgian building houses the Estorick Collection, internationally known for its Italian art.

Mainly futurist works plus figurative painting and sculpture from 1895 to the 1950s.

Eric Estorick (1913-93) was an American sociologist and writer who began to collect works of art when he came to live in England after the Second World War. Born in Brooklyn, Estorick studied at New York University during the early 1930s, where he saw a remarkable collection containing masterpieces by Picasso, Lger, Mir and Matisse which was to inspire him to become a collector himself. Estorick visited Europe in 1946 to complete work on the second biography and it was at this time that he began to buy drawings by artists such as Picasso, Gris, Lger and Braque.

Six months prior to his death Estorick set up the Eric and Salome Estorick Foundation, to which he donated all his Italian works.
