Marie Koutsomallis-Moreau
The Collection of the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation
Tome I: Modern Art 1870-1945
Edition in English

The first volume featuring the collection of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation is dedicated to modern art from 1870 to 1945. Spanning some 600 pages the catalogue presents each work of art in detail and also includes a chronology.

The Collection of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation is one of the most important private collections to be assembled in the course of the second half of the 20th century.

Like all collections, the present one is eminently subjective. Although Basil and Elise Goulandris were surrounded by renowned historians and professionals from the art market already in the early 1950s, the couple chose these works following the criteria of their own personal tastes and aesthetic standards. They built their collection with care, patience and true devotion over a period of nearly fifty years and this with the aim that it would one day be exhibited in their museum.
