First and foremost, it is a rare opportunity to see a great number of works from a remarkable and thoughtfully considered collection, all under one roof. The tremendous size of many of the works, the extensive range of subject matter, the sheer visual appeal of the paintings and the incredible frames that surround them, as well as the opportunity to consider not only the aesthetics but the ethos of a period, and not the least, the opportunity to contemplate the selection process of a man of good taste, all contribute to what can best be described as that “wow” factor.
