Louis-Antoine Prat

Pierre-Paul Prud'hon's "Fortuna" 1799-1800. Coleccao Prat

And what is the long-term future of the collection? Prat, who is 65 and has no children, says that there are only two solutions. The first is the one accepted by Edmond de Goncourt, who wrote in 1897 that he wanted his works of art auctioned off “so that the pleasure I enjoyed in buying each one of them can be inherited by someone who shares my tastes”. The other approach, which is Prat’s, is to eventually give everything away.

No Artnewspaper.
