The Magnificent Art Collection of Dr Lillian Malcove Consists of 513 pieces: paintings, drawings, furniture, icons, manuscripts, and textiles, as well as works in terracotta, glass, bronze, stone, enamel, ivory, silver, and gold. They represent a vast range of art history, from prehistory to the twentieth century, including Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and western medieval works, and even a few pieces from the Far East.Dr Malcove, a psychoanalyst in New York, bequeathed the collection to the University of Toronto so that it might be used in teaching. It is housed in the University of Toronto Art Centre.This catalogue was initially produced in conjunction with the first exhibit of the collection, presented at the University of Toronto in two parts, late in 1985 and early in 1986. Each piece is illustrated in the catalogue, and this new paperback edition features eight pages of colour photographs. Extensive descriptions, identifying and evaluating the objects, have been provided by scholars who represent diverse areas of expertise in art and archaeology. Also included are five brief memoirs by friends of Dr Malcove.The catalogue stands as a permanent record of an extraordinary collection and a unique perspective on art from a variety of cultures throughout history.
