TitleCatalogue entries created for the private collection of Gustav Rau
Admin/Biog HistorySunderland was recommended, via Michel Laclotte at the Musée du Louve, to the Foundation Rau to assist in writing catalogue entries for works by British artists in the collection of German doctor, philanthropist and art collector, Gustav Rau (1922-2002). As this was a private collection, it is assumed the catalogue was used by the Foundation to manage their holdings. There is no suggestion of the work being published beyond this purpose, or though it may have been made more publically available at a later date.

Sunderland was responsibile for writing entries for the following paintings:

-Chinnery, George, 1774-1852, Portrait of Thomas Hooke Pearson
