Excerpt from Catalogue of Italian Pictures at 16, South Street, Park Lane, London and Buckhurst in Sussex They were inspired primarily by the example of two great collectors of the past generation, Mr. William Graham and Mr. Holford, of whom, and of one or two others, a few words may be said. Mr. Graham could hardly resist any Early Italian picture, sacred or profane, provided it was reverent or true in feeling. With him conception was more potent than execution, and attributions were of secondary importance. Withal he considered it a duty to buy prudently. Make up your mind, he said, beforehand as to the value, and always put on a limit. Or, if it be a masterpiece and you want it badly, you may go up to double its market value, or even more! But be sure and think it out beforehand, and don't be carried away at the auction, nor rushed by a clever seller.
