A memoir of anecdotes relating to things that happened along the way to a savvy gal while running a 34 year career as a Fine Art Advisor and Appraiser. How a Monet painting at auction shocked the audience at Sotheby's; what seemed like a simple case for an appraisal turned into a case involving the FBI, IRS and Insurance Commissioner; a presentation in Miami evolved into a day of living challenges and how Mr. Right was discovered while compiling a major corporate collection, these are just a few of the "Tales" told. All tales are true, witty, poignant, intelligent, informative, sophisticated, and a fresh perspective of the often mysterious world of art.

This is a fun book to read. The author has revealed to us that the world of art is not that much different from other businesses or industries when people are involved. The "product" may be more colorful and exotic than the norm; but the interplay with artists,clients and art dealers is where the foibles, tensions, and human weaknesses arise. It is the art that ties all these elements together making for interesting possiblities, since art often evokes emotion with an individual and very personal response.
A fun read about the life and adventures of a young woman's career behind the. Scenes of the art world.
