On these occasions, notes were always kept of any new attributions, and it is interesting to follow the gradually changing opinions offered on the drawings by Sidney Colvin (Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum from 1883 to 1912), Bernard Berenson and many others. Robert was also a collector in his own right, and on a very limited budget managed to add three important works to the collection: the Watteau (1684-1721), Head of Mezzetin (p 69), discovered in an antique shop in Reading many years ago; the delicate pen study by Piero di Cosimo (1462-1521), purchased at one of Sotheby's sales in 1971 (see Art at Auction, 1970-71, p 73) for £650 and sold for £6,500 six years later; and the two fine works by Giulio Romano (1499-1546).

Under the influence of Max J. Friedlander, who had been forced to move to Amsterdam at the beginning of the war and with whom he formed a close friendship, Wetzlar turned his attention away from the seventeenthcentury masters and concentrated on the northern and southern Netherlandish painters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
