Connoisseurship and serendipity have played equal roles in the formation of Ronald Lauder’s collection of Early German and Netherlandish paintings. He began to form this collection when he was only around thirty years old. His knowledge about the European masters was enhanced through frequent visits to museums and private collections in New York City beginning in his childhood. Furthermore, Lauder’s acquisitions over time have come to complement his interests, namely a remarkable collection of arms and armor. As such, the Renaissance in northern Europe is marvelously well represented, which Maryan Ainsworth will explore.
