Wallace Collection

Wallace Collection

The world-class collection of art that is the Wallace Collection was largely put together by the Fourth Marquis of Hertford. He was helped by his illegitimate son Richard Wallace, who eventually inherited the collection. They were able to buy a lot of the paintings, porcelain and furniture that make up the collection cheaply in post-Revolutionary France, because of its politically dangerous associations. Richard Wallace finally moved the collection to England, and in 1897 his wife left the collection to the nation.
