Abstract :
Examines the character, formation, and arrangement of Lely's collection, and considers why it was highly regarded and how and for what purpose it may have been assembled. Lely's initialled letter stamp, applied posthumously by Roger North, helps identify drawings and prints once in his ownership and provides the only accurate means of reconstructing the collection. The drawing collection included examples from all the major European schools from the late-15th c. to the mid-17th c. The main focus, as in the print collection, was on works by 16th-c. Italian artists. Considers English sources for his acquisitions, including the Arundel Collection and Nicholas Lanier's, and that of the Dutch landscape artist and dealer, Gerrit Von Uylenburgh. Concludes that Lely's collection acted as a source of potential ideas and inspiration for the artist-collector, as well as testifying to his connoisseurship. ;
