Roberta SmithAnyone interested in art or the art world will enjoy this book. It casts light on the travels of some of the world's greatest pictures and the evolution of some of its greatest public collections, especially in the United States, as well as the invention of the old master paintings market. Most of all, it details an early example of the art dealer as a connoisseur, socialite, evangelist, gadfly and mercenary that remains a model today.
