Some of the most famous British paintings in the world are to be found at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. The Huntington collection, begun by railroad magnate Henry R. Huntington in 1908, today holds over 165 portraits, landscapes, and other paintings, including such icons of British art as Thomas Gainsborough's The Blue Boy, Joshua Reynolds's Sarah Siddons as the Tragic Muse, and John Constable's View on the Stour near Dedham. This illustrated catalogue of the Huntington paintings is the first full-length catalogue of the collection in 65 years, as well as the first to examine the circumstances of Henry Huntington's art acquisitions and his fascinating dealings with art dealer Joseph Duveen.
