"Eventually, a collection ceases to be a personal indulgence and assumes its own identity.

  In fact, it becomes a thing in its own right - rather like Frankenstein's monster."

 - Howard Hodgkin (ARTNews)

The Georgii Collection (TGC) is an online gallery for Fine Arts. All work is original artwork and was diligently collected, often re-framed and restored into its present state. This private collection is located in San Francisco, California and currently not open for public viewing.

As of November 2017 TGC includes more than 450 works of art including paintings, drawings and etchings. It was inspired by the many collections and galleries all over the world with particular focus on 19th and 20th century European and American art. The collection contains no looted art as defined by the Commission for Looted Art in Europe and its database is frequently checked in order to confirm compliance.

 

This website is strictly non-commercial and for enjoyment only. None of the artwork is for sale. Your comments and ideas are always welcome.

 
Current projects include the 'Special Exhibit' section that is being updated on an ongoing basis - plus the expansion of the 'Modern & Contemporary Art' section including works of well known Californian watercolor artists. Also in preparation is a special 'Photography' section with focus on European photography in the early 20th century.
