A famed connoisseur of European paintings and of objects of fine art from many cultures, Count Grigory Sergeievich Stroganoff of Rome, Paris, and St Petersburg also had a large collection of Egyptian art. This early Egyptian collection was dispersed with scarcely any record at the time of Stroganoff's death, and so has been known almost exclusively from a slender booklet produced in connection with an exhibition mounted in 1880 in Aachen. The three authors join their own researches from different perspectives to create a portrait of Stroganoff as a collector of Egyptian antiquities.
