PAINTINGS Paintings marked were not on exhibition at the time this catalogue was compiled. PAINTINGS BY OLD MASTERS Dutch and Flemish THE HUTCHINSON GALLERY OF OLD MASTERS (Room 32) was named by the Trustees.in honor of Charles Lawrence Hutchinson on the completion, in 1907, of his twenty-fifth year as President of the Art Institute. Thirteen of the most important pictures in this room were purchased from the famous Demidoff Collection in Florence. In 1880, the Palace of San Donato, the Demidoff family seat in Florence, was sold by Prince Paul Demidoff. Some of the pictures now in the Art Institute are described in the San Donato Catalogue of 1880 but were withdrawn from sale by Prince Demidoff as the choicest part of the collection, while others do not appear in the catalogue and were probably never intended to be sold. Enough pictures remained after the sale of 1880 to occupy a gallery at the new Demidoff home at Pratolino, and the works now exhibited remained there until they were purchased for the Art Institute, in June, 1890, from the surviving Princess Demidoff.
