    Samuel H. Kress Foundation amassed one of the most astonishing collections of European Old Master paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts ever assembled through the efforts of a private individual. Even more remarkable was the manner in which Kress would share his collection . The Kress Collection was then shared - 1, works of art were donated to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. All of the rest - another 1, pieces - was distributed across the continent.

      The Kress Project is soliciting responses to the 12 Italian Renaissance paintings in the museum’s Kress Collection through early Submissions may include a wide variety of forms, such as academic essays, visual art, choreography, fashion design or even a recipe inspired by a work in the collection. [1] Provenance according to Kress records in NGA curatorial files. [2] The painting is listed in the Duveen Brothers General Stock Book for the period 1 June to April , and is annotated "Purchased Aug. 3, " (copy in NGA curatorial files; Duveen Brothers Records, Accession No. , Getty Research Institute, R Box ).

    The Samuel H. Kress Foundation and Artstor have collaborated on a project to digitize and publish more than 1, images of European art, mostly paintings from the Kress Collection, to the Digital Library. The selection in Artstor reflects the Kress Collection’s strength in Italian art, mostly Renaissance, with additional works from the French, Spanish, Dutch, Flemish, and German schools.   The sixteenth century book The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, sometimes referred to as Vite or The Lives, guided Kress’s collection process. The book is a series of artist biographies from the Italian Renaissance. Kress wanted to own at least one painting by each of the artists referenced in the book.
