Overview

Featuring over 80 rare images this Asian art book explores the role of collectors in preserving classical art.

American art museums have long depended on the philanthropy of individual art collectors in establishing their holdings. By why do collectors collect? How do they select the works they choose?

In Collector's Choice, Collector's Voice, collectors who are members of a group associated with the Asian Art Museum explain in their own words what led them to select favorite works for their personal collections. The result is a fascinating picture of the personal motivations that inspire collectors in shaping their collections.
