Red Brick AuditoriumSquare Chapel
This collection of gold, silver and Italian mosaics was formed over forty years by Arthur Gilbert in Los Angeles. Formerly at Somerset House, it is now displayed in a magnificent group of galleries at the V&A. For some years Dr Schroder was curator of decorative arts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and played a key role in the development of the collection. This lecture will focus on some facets of the collection: silver, gold and snuffboxes and allude to enamelled portrait miniatures, Italian micromosaics and pietre dure, and a unique insight into the man who formed it.
