Philip Wilson Publishers
In May 2011 Philip Wilson Publishers was acquired by I.B.Tauris & Co. Ltd.
For forty years Philip Wilson Publishers (PWP) has specialised in producing authoritative, finely designed art and illustrated books. Starting life as Sotheby’s Publications, the publishing arm of the famous auction house, it became independent in 1977 as PWP. With over seven hundred works to its credit, the company still concentrates on its original specialisation: catalogues raisonnés, monographs, private collection and exhibition catalogues, and museum guides.
PWP’s concentration on the publication of exhibition catalogues has seen it collaborate with many well known private collectors and public museums, including Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza, whose collection is chronicled in eighteen volumes, Robert Smith and Sir Arthur Gilbert, The Phillips Collection, The Frick Collection, Dulwich Picture Gallery, The Meadows Museum, The National Gallery of Ireland, the New-York Historical Society, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and The Walters Art Museum. These exhibition catalogues have been particularly successful over the years because of PWP’s unfailing ability to achieve two quite different things with each one: a record of an exhibition at a particular point in time, and a reference work whose scope and utility have a lasting value.
