Provenance

John J. Slocum, Newport RI;
Purchased from the Slocum estate by current owner.

Catalogue Note

Note on provenance: Mr. Slocum (1914 - 1997) collected while serving as a U.S. cultural attaché in Berlin (1950 - 1960) and while attached to the Embassy in Egypt (1960-3). Later, he served as Assistant to the Director of The Smithsonian, was appointed by President Reagan to the Presidential Cultural Property Advisory Committee, and was a Trustee Emeritus of the Archaeological Institute of America. Slocum was a respected scholar and collector of literature who donated an important collection of works by James Joyce to Yale University. He collected and sold fine art from the Medieval period through Impressionism, and his medieval Crusader coin collection comprised a single-owner sale at Sotheby's London in 1997.
