The Society for the History of Collecting

We are an international not-for-profit society bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines who are interested in the study of collecting in all its ramifications, including the relationships between collecting and the art market. We cover all aspects of collecting, whether amassed by private individuals or public institutions, and ranging through any time in the past to the present day.

Our goals for the Society are:

  • to advance the study of the history of collecting by encouraging the exchange of ideas
  • to  support scholarship and training in the study of collecting and art markets
  • to protect pertinent archives and sources.

For the public at large, we provide a platform for the exchange of information in the form of the present website with a diary of relevant forthcoming conferences, reports on past conferences, a directory of the Society’s members, and select relevant bibliographies.
