Matthew Uzielli

Banker and art collector (1806 - 1860)

Uzielli was a partner in the merchant bankers' Charles Devaux and Co. They were involved in governement loans and railway finance. Uzielli was personally famous for his extensive art collection. It was housed at his home Hanover Lodge in Regent's Park, London. He was particularly keen on Italian Renaissance paintings and he was advised by J C Robinson, a curator at the National Gallery, on his fine art purchases. His collection was sold at Christie's after his death. Several paintings went to the collections of the National Gallery and South Kensington Gallery (now Victoria and Albert Museum), both in London.
