Hard Cover. Brand New w/book jacket. 11 x 13". Magnificent oversize hardcover volume 240 pages. Over the course of more than 45 years, Victor & sally Ganz created one of the
finest and most personal collections of 20th century art ever assembled! . Their approach was a unique blend of insight and erudition. From the moment they purchased Picasso's masterpiece "The Dream " in 1941, they made a courageous commitment to a particular vision of art history, one based on the belief that modern culture is defined by the achievements of only a few great artists. . In this profusely illustrated volume, leading curators, art dealers, and art historians analyze the Ganzes' vision and examine their steadfast committment. Essays by John Richardson, Leo Steinberg, Maya Picasso, Brigitte Baer, Susan Lorence and others. The size of this book makes the many double full-page color photographs all the more interesting. To see FOUR Picassos on a living room wall -- well, where have you ever seen that? With an unerring eye (sharpened by exhaustive study), they chose Jasper Johns, Robert Raushcenberg, and Frank Stella at the beginning of their careers, and then moved on to champion Eva Hesse. The Ganzes were not merely collectors of art; their friendships with these artists were often as inspiring as their financial support. In this book of essays by John Richardson, Leo Steinberg, David Sylvester, Judith Goldman, Roberta Bernstein, Linda Shearer, and others, we learn about the art and artists in the collection, as well as the risks and commitments the Ganzes made in establishing these artists we now hail as among the masters of contemporary art.".
