Alec Cobbe (b.1945) established his reputation as a conservator of Old Master paintings before specializing in the redecoration and rearrangement of historic interiors as homes for masterpieces. His list of clients includes H.R.H.The Prince of Wales and the Ritz Hotel. This beautifully illustrated catalogue marks a gift to the V&A of Cobbe’s career archive. Three essays explore the subtle art of presenting great paintings in historic houses that are open to visitors and introduce the related holdings of the V&A’s Archive of Art and Design, where Cobbe’s designs will sit alongside those of other eminent interior designers and decorators.
