The collection, belonging to the wealthy Barons Louis and Alphons von Rothschild, was looted by the SS on 12-13 March 1938, within 24 hours of the Anschluss, Hitler's annexation of Austria. Where are they now? Waddeston is a 4,000-acre estate designed in the 1870s. Waddesdon's cellars, containing another sizeable collection: 15,000 bottles of historic wines from the family's estates, Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Mouton Rothschild. Over the years, much of the collection has been donated to the British Museum or the National Trust, a conservation charity that was bequeathed the building by Jacob's relative, James de Rothschild, when he died in 1957. The Baltimore native was especially drawn to artists whose work was both intellectually rigorous and historically provocative, including Claude Monet , Robert Delaunay , Camille Pissarro , and Russian artists of the 20th century. The desk that once belonged to Marie Antoinette, the infamously decadent last Queen of France who was guillotined during the French Revolution, is "one of the great treasures of the house" and a "perfect example" of what his ancestors wanted, says Rothschild. Perhaps then they learned to appreciate the fine detail and line of a work of art. Did globalisation increase or decrease financial instability? There are still, nevertheless, visitable places - Waddesdon in England and the Villa Ile de France on Cap Ferrat in southern France - where le goût Rothschild can still be appreciated, reminders of a passion which seized a family and thus enriched the world. After a first initiative, ahead of its time, with the poster artist Jean Carlu in 1924, Baron Philippe waited until 1945 to finally establish a tradition that would henceforth become the visual hallmark of Mouton Rothschild. The Rothschild works include 31 paintings, three by the Dutch master Franz Hals, as well as antique musical instruments and weapons, carpets, globes and navigation instruments. Rothschild's ancestor, Henri, once owned 18 of Chardin's works, though they were all destroyed in a bombing during World War II.

The painting of the boy was offered to Rothschild by an art dealer, and apparently similar "random opportunistic examples" often present themselves to the family. Set amid a 4,000-acre estate, Waddesdon was built as a weekend retreat to accommodate its original owner's twin passions: weekend partying and collecting valuables. Built in 1889, the museum first opened to the public in 1892. From humble beginnings ("in the Ghetto, in Frankfurt, and they lived in a room, 18 of them," as Rothschild characterizes it), the family has done more than almost any other to amass collections of valuable artworks, public and private, around the world. Sources for yachting history: Plans for Nathaniel von Rothschild's yacht Veglia 1905. Armed with these skills, theRothschilds swept the European markets, usually spurning the saleroom in favour of the private deal, often buying up not single paintings but whole collections - no less than 82 Old Masters in one deal in 1878 by Lionel in London. In several respect James set the mood and the pace. The Rothschild Collection Leonard Joel is honoured to be handling the Rothschild Collection in December. Comprising over 700 lots, we will be offering the collection in capsule format across our suite of auctions commencing with Fine Jewels & Timepieces and Fine Art, The … His brother Alphonse (1827-1905) had already bought up over 2,000 works of contemporary French painting and sculpture and given them to over 150 museums, often to form the core of their collections. Some of the objects on display were looted by the Nazis but were restituted after the war. Even many art specialists do not know the real value of the Rothschild art collection in Vienna. But thousands of items remain in the family's personal collection. Alfred Charles de Rothschild (1842 - 1918) RA Collection: People and Organisations The second son of Lionel de Rothschild and Baroness Charlotte von Rothschild of the prominent Rothschild family. It was for the artists of 18th century France that the Rothschilds, from their bases in London, Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt and Naples clamoured - for the paintings, the furniture and the porcelain - in particular the product of the French Royal porcelain factory at Sèvres.
